Judge rules Google must turn over documents to Apple in Samsung case

Google ordered to hand over search terms used to find files relating to latest Apple v Samsung battle

A judge has ruled that Google must turn over information about how it searched its documents to Apple. Judge Paul S. Grewal ruled in the latest Samsung and Apple fight that Google's argument of the discovery being too burdensome was not the case and ordered Google to turn over the requested documents within 48 hours. Google had previously argued Apple was not entitled to the documents.

He also noted the irony of Google's argument: "The court cannot help but note the irony that Google, a pioneer in searching the Internet, is arguing that it would be unduly burdened by producing a list of how it searched its own files." Documents must be provided to Apple within 48 hours.

 

Grewal argues that the documents will aid in discovering whether or not Google's production was sufficient. The latest lawsuit is between Apple and Samsung and does not directly involve Google. Google, however, is being brought into it by Apple who asserts that most of the infringing functions are part of Android.
