Steve Jobs Android rant banned from Apple-Samsung trial

Written by Peter Scott



Separation of church and state


A US court approved Apple’s request to bar statements made by late Apple CEO Steve Jobs about Google’s Android OS from an upcoming hearing in the never ending patent case against Samsung.

Samsung wanted to introduce a statement from Jobs’ biography, in which he declared a crusade against Android and said he would wage thermonuclear war against Google’s OS. Samsung argued that the statement “speaks to Apple’s bias, improper motives and its lack of believe in its own claims.” Furthermore Samsung claims that Jobs’ rant proves Apple’s ultimate goal is the destruction of Android and that the end justifies the means.

Apple argued that Jobs’ quotes are an inadmissible distraction and asked the court to bar them from the trial. The fact that Jobs was actually in charge of Apple when the crusade against Android infidels was launched apparently does not make a difference.

In the end US District Court judge Lucy Koh sided with Apple and ruled that Jobs’ statements were not relevant.

“I really don’t think this is a trial about Steve Jobs,” she said.
