As per the news Google accepted not to reveal some of the potential legal costs which had to be aided to Samsungin case if Apple wins patent fight against Samsung. Samsung and Google are interconnected, Apple stated and provided substantial evidences in form of letters and emails which clearly showed that some of the executives from Google had accepted to facilitate Samsung’s legal cost just in case if Samsung loses the patent fight from the conventional rival.
Samsung in the trial raised the point of being the wrong defendant as it should have been Google actually targeted by Apple as Google and the Android OS for running 9 Samsung smartphones and a Galaxy tab.
