iOS head Scott Forstall to testify in Apple v. Samsung case

updated 09:42 am EDT, Wed August 1, 2012

Will follow marketing exec Phil Schiller

Apple's senior VP for iOS software, Scott Forstall, will soon testify on behalf of his company in the ongoing Apple v. Samsung patent trial, AppleInsider notes. The executive is set to testify as soon as this Friday, after worldwide product marketing head Phil Schiller, who wasn't able to complete his own testimony on Tuesday due to the end of the court session. The information was made public in a Tuesday filing, although Samsung was made aware earlier.

Schiller and Forstall are by far the most prominent witnesses Apple lawyers have named so far. The company has also put forward industrial designer Chris Stringer, graphic designer Susan Kare, and Ravin Balakrishnan, who doesn't work for Apple but is a professor of computer science at the University of Toronto, and previously served as an expert witness backing the company's preliminary injunction motion in 2011. Kare and Balakrishnan are only set to testify well after Forstall, however. In between Apple has listed Justin Denison, Wookyun Kho, and Peter Bressler as witnesses.
