[CNET] Apple ordered to pay Samsung's U.K. legal fees

Apple has been ordered by a U.K. court to cough up Samsung's entire U.K. legal fees for embellishing its court-ordered part-statement, part-apology with additional details, which were highly criticized by the court for being "false and misleading."

The U.K. Court of Appeal's lambasting of Apple comes after the company had first been ordered to issue a statement on its Web site and in a number of U.K. print publications to note that Samsung did not copy the iPad in the U.K. The first order came after Samsung won the patent-infringement case.

As a result of Samsung's complaint to the U.K. Court of Appeal following the not-so-kind apology, Samsung will now be reimbursed its entire legal fees in the country back to the very beginning of the case.

Yeah, love it. We need more judges like this
Quote:
As to the costs (lawyers' fees) to be awarded against Apple, we concluded that they should be on an indemnity basis. Such a basis (which is higher than the normal, "standard" basis) can be awarded as a mark of the court's disapproval of a party's conduct, particularly in relation to its respect for an order of the court. Apple's conduct warranted such an order.

Finally I should mention the time for compliance. Mr Beloff, on instructions (presumably given with the authority of Apple) told us that "for technical reasons" Apple needed fourteen days to comply. I found that very disturbing: that it was beyond the technical abilities of Apple to make the minor changes required to own website in less time beggared belief. In end we gave it 48 hours which in itself I consider generous. We said the time could be extended by an application supported by an affidavit from a senior executive explaining the reasons why more was needed. In the event no such application was made. I hope that the lack of integrity involved in this incident is entirely atypical of Apple.
