And now you go from "tried to influence the jury with inadmissible evidence" to "tried to force inadmissible evidence".
What's the problem with that?
You don't see any difference in the meanings? One involves, well, direct attempts to influence jury, other one:
Did he present the said evidence to the jury against orders? Are reporters on the jury now?
Yes, by explicitly stating that the evidence was about Apple copying SONY in the courtroom.
Really? Just hearing description of evidence is enough to influence jury? You're quite dismissive of legal system here, assuming jury's not only gonna break obligation not to read media coverage of process, but also going to be influenced solely by description of evidence explicitly dismissed by the judge and not even meant for consideration by jurors. Seriously, read the fucking article, I see you still didn't do that. Even Apple's lawyers refer only to publication as attempts to influence jury, not about jury hearing his description.
Your definition of "Samsung explicitly tried to influence the jury in the courtroom using excluded evidence" is rather stretched.
I am yet to see how...
Explicit (adj.) Very specific, clear, or detailed.
So, "reconsider her earlier decision that Samsung not be allowed to present evidence showing that Apple's iPhone was inspired by "Sony style."" is very specific, clear and detailed influence?
Also, you're again doing your thing with renaming "inspired by "Sony style"" to "Apple copied SONY". Hyperboles much?
