As she did in the first Apple vs. Samsung patent trial
, Judge Lucy Koh is again requiring
the companies to narrow their claims and limit the scope of their arguments against each other as both firms prepare for a second patent trial
on different patent infringement arguments than those in the first trial, which Apple won handily
but is currently on appeal. The order, which was issued late on Wednesday, comes ahead of some possible summary judgement rulings
that could leave either Apple or Samsung with fewer patents to argue over.
