Apple-Samsung trial Judge worried about a 'confused jury'

U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh, who expressed concern about the outcome.
"I am worried we might have a seriously confused jury here," Koh told legal counsel from both companies. "I have trouble understanding this, and I have spent a little more time with this than they have."
"It's so complex, and there are so many pieces here," she added.
Jurors will be faced with the tedious task of assigning damages, a tally that ranges from million to billions of dollars based on which expert report is used as the guideline.
"I saw [Apple's damages expert Terry] Musika like everyone else, that's obviously not going to assist the jury in every way for what it can and cannot award," Samsung attorney Michael Zeller told the judge.Apple, on the other hand, thought there was plenty there for jurors to figure out.
"Looking at the verdict form, this is even more granular than anything Samsung has proposed," Apple attorney Michael Jacobs said of the company's verdict form offering.
