Apple on May 1st filed a motion in the Northern District of California alleging that Samsung intentionally destroyed documents it was ordered to hand over to the Cupertino-based company, Network World reported on Friday. Apple referred to Samsung’s actions as a “spoilation of evidence” and wants the Judge to inform the jury that the South Korean vendor acted in bad faith in failing to meet its legal duty. If the jury finds Samsung liable for infringement, they may presume that the infringement was “intentional, willful, without regard to Apple’s rights,” and the documents in question would have been advantageous to Apple’s position. The iPhone-maker said Samsung’s actions “vast quantities of relevant evidence in blatant disregard of its duty to preserve all such evidence.” A hearing on Apple’s motion is scheduled for June 7th. Samsung’s reply brief is due by May 15th, however the smartphone vendor is seeking an extension to May 29th and would like to see the hearing pushed back to July 10th.
