Federal District Judge Lucy Koh said she will review claims that the jury foreman in the Apple-Samsung patent infringement case hid information during the jury selection process.
In a major blow to Samsung, a jury in August awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages.
Samsung is arguing that jury foreman Velvin Hogan did not disclose that he filed for bankruptcy in the 1990s after being sued by his former employer, Seagate Technologies, according to CNET. Since 2011, Samsung has owned shares of Seagate and has a partnership with the company, according to the Register.
Additionally, Samsung said that one of the lawyers who represented Seagate against Hogan is married to one of the lawyers who represented Samsung in the case, according to the Register.
Koh said she will review the matter at a hearing on Dec. 6.
"The Court will consider the questions of whether the jury foreperson concealed information during voir dire, whether any concealed information was material, and whether any concealment constituted misconduct," the judge said in her order, according to CNET.
