Apple has now declined to answer Samsung's question in its motion that when did Cupertino learn about the jury foreman's previous court case with Seagate. Apple in its response says that it is not compelled to respond as it was Samsung who accused Hogan of misconduct and not Apple. Apple had threatened Samsung with the same question and Samsung told that it learned it only after Hogan started to talk to media. Does the denial mean Apple did know about it beforehand? So if Apple did know that Hogan was involved in a case with Seagate it may matter. Won't the chances of a verdict going against my opponent increase if I learn that the foreman holds grudges against my enemy? Will I want to disclose this fact and get such a foreman removed? Will I shoot at my own foot?"
