Apple, Samsung heads fail to make progress in court-ordered talks

updated 11:13 am EST, Fri February 14, 2014

Trial due to begin at end of March

Apple CEO Tim Cook and the head of Samsung's mobile division, Shin Jong-Kyun, are said to have met last week in a failed attempt to negotiate an out-of-court settlement, Korean reports say. The meeting came about because of a US court order mandating the two sides meet ahead of next month's trial. Lawyers are said to have met on January 6th to set a framework for the negotiation, which included a Feburary 19th deadline, and the presence of each side's CEO along with three to four in-house attorneys.

When asked, Samsung wouldn't confirm the outcome of the meeting or even if it took place. Apple typically avoids commenting on ongoing legal matters.

The upcoming trial will deal with more recent devices, such as the iPhone 4S and later Galaxy phones. Some prominent executives are due to testify, including Apple marketing head Phil Schiller and ousted iOS division chief Scott Forstall.
