Frustrated judge orders Apple, Samsung counsel to meet today

Judge Koh says she is "disappointed" in final jury instructions discussions and order attorneys to meet face to face.
"The Court is disappointed by the parties' respective reports regarding their meet and confer efforts on final jury instructions," U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh said in her order today, according to Foss Patents. "Lead trial counsel shall meet and confer in person today and file joint and disputed final jury instructions by Monday, August 13, 2012 at 8 a.m."
Foss reports that an Apple filing late Friday claimed that "although [it] has tried diligently to advance the process, Samsung has stymied those efforts." Samsung reportedly responded by saying it had "agreed to more than twenty revised instructions proposed by Apple and is continuing to review Apple's remaining disputed instructions for any common ground," while Apple had "agreed to only two complete instructions drafted solely by Samsung."
