The US court has ordered Samsung and Apple to reduce the number of patents involved in their respective cases against each other. The court felt that it's too hard to continue the trial due to the numerous alleged infringements, which include 16 patents, 6 trademarks, 5 trade dress patents, and 1 antitrust case. Judge Lucy Koh said, "The large number of claims between Samsung and Apple is cruel and unusual punishment to a jury." Samsung CEO Choi Gee-sung and Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook have agreed to meet on May 21 and 22.
