U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh held up both the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab and asked Samsung lawyers to identify which was which during a hearing to determine whether Apple will win a preliminary injunction against the Samsung device, reports Reuters.
After being asked to identify which tablet was which, Samsung attorney Kathleen Sullivan answered, "Not at this distance your honor." She stood at a podium roughly ten feet away.
"Can any of Samsung's lawyers tell me which one is Samsung and which one is Apple?" Koh asked. A moment later, one of the lawyers supplied the right answer.
While Koh says that Samsung's Galaxy tab does infringe on Apple's iPad patents, she says that Apple has a problem establishing the validity of those patents.
Koh has yet to rule on Apple's request to bar the Galaxy Tab from being sold in the United States.
