Apple looking to get hands on Android source code records in latest Samsung battle

Apple looking to obtain Android source code records from Google

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: May 8, 2013 9:28 pm

Apple is attempting to put its hands on Android source code records held by Google. The company asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal to force Google to turn over documents in relation to Android. Apple asserts that Google is improperly withholding information about search terms used to turn up documents requested by Apple.

According to Mark Lyon, a lawyer for Apple, "It's a question of transparency. We have concerns that they're not doing a full search." Matthew Warren, a Google lawyer also representing Samsung, argues that Apple is not entitled to the search terms as it may lead to "future discovery that we don't think they're entitled to" and give Apple "ideas about how to proceed that they wouldn't have had."

 

This is just the latest battle between Samsung and Apple. The lawsuit, 12-cv-630, involves newer smartphones produced by both companies, including the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S 3. We're sure there will be plenty more arguing between the companies before we get any meaningful resolution.
