Samsung loses Japan iPhone battle but gains help of ex-judge
...Mr Mueller - who has himself served as a consultant to Oracle in a case against Android-maker Google - suggested that it "just doesn't feel right" bearing in mind that Sir Robin had dealt "Samsung's number one rival a huge PR blow" in November. There is no suggestion that anything illegal or in breach of any rules has occurred - a point Mr Mueller acknowledges...
And I thought I risked maligning a judge. Well, it looks like they bought him a piffle. And no suggestion of anything illegal, only the suggestion of something unethical. The very description of Samsung corporate practices at boardroom level.
Can't imagine why anyone is surprised.
