Apple Must Disclose HTC Deal in Samsung Patent Lawsuit

 Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been ordered by a U.S judge to disclose to Samsung Electronics the details of its patent settlement with HTC Corporation.

US Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal accepted Samsung’s motion and ordered Apple to produce documents for “attorney-eyes-only”, reported Wall Street Journal. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) signed a 10-year agreement with HTC Corporation, which settled all their lawsuits.

Apple has been at the center of several lawsuits with regard to patent infringements in the recent past finding itself in either side of the case.

The iPhone maker won its case against Samsung electronics resulting into $1 billion worth of damages compensation, but weeks later lost against the Korean-based electronics giant, albeit for a smaller compensation.

The company recently indicated that it was going add to its latest accusation on Samsung, the jelly bean feature in Galaxy note 10.1.
