Earlier this month Apple and HTC reached a settlement on previous patent disputes, a short time afterwards Samsung requested to see such settlement in order to see if Apple simply took their products of the market in spite, as if they reached an agreement on the same patents that they took Samsung to court over, Samsung should have been able to do the same.

During the hearing today the two companies battled it out, with US Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal looking after proceedings for which he concluded with the following statement in his report:

“Although the court is more than a little skeptical of Samsung’s arguments regarding the financial terms, Rule 26 supplies a broad standard of relevance.”

“Samsung’s motion to compel production of an unredacted version of the settlement agreement is granted.”

“Apple shall produce the unredacted document without delay subject to an Attorneys-Eyes-Only designation under the protective order already in place in this case.”

So it doesn’t look like we will be hearing any information about he settlement anytime soon, but hopefully something might just leak out, fingers crossed.
