Throughout the seemingly interminable legal wrangling in the Apple vs. Samsung patent battle, we’ve enjoyed one thing in particular: The oh-snap stylings of Judge Lucy Koh.
Someone get this woman her own Court TV show, because she is killing it:
Perhaps most memorable was this mad-as-hell outburst:
“With the jury out of the courtroom, Koh laid into Apple, asking why it would present such a lengthy document ‘when unless you’re smoking crack you know these witnesses aren’t going to be called!’”
But that line was far from a one-off:
“We’re wasting the jury’s time,” she said. “You are being unreasonable.”
The eyeroll is implied.
It’s easy to visualize the angry, outstretched hand that accompanied this one:
“I don’t trust what any lawyer tells me in this courtroom. I want to see actual papers.”
Here she is, demanding a settlement:
“It’s time for peace.”
But she doesn’t even know why she bothers anymore:
“Koh continued to express hope for a settlement on Thursday, noting that she was perhaps ‘pathologically optimistic.’”
