Judge urges Apple, Samsung CEOs to talk settlement

U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh today once again urged Apple and Samsung's chief executives to meet in hopes of settling the case."If you can have your CEOs have one last conversation, I'd appreciate it," Koh told legal counsel for both companies in court today.Apple and Samsung had previously met ahead of the trial to discuss settlements, court-mandated talks that did not lead to a resolution.
The trial between the two tech giants kicked off at the beginning of the month, and is currently in its third week. Both Apple and Samsung aim to make their two-hour closing arguments next week, which will be followed by jury deliberation. Koh expressed doubts that the jury decision would be nice and tidy.
"If you all want to keep over-reaching, it's up to you," Koh said. "But I think it would be better to streamline this case."
