Samsung has publicly released evidence banned from its trial with Apple in an attempt to undermine the company's case, reports AllThingsD.

The evidence which aims to show that Apple copied its design for the iPhone from Sony was released with the following statement attached:

The Judge's exclusion of evidence on independent creation meant that even though Apple was allowed to inaccurately argue to the jury that the F700 was an iPhone copy, Samsung was not allowed to tell the jury the full story and show the pre-iPhone design for that and other phones that were in development at Samsung in 2006, before the iPhone. The excluded evidence would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design. Fundamental fairness requires that the jury decide the case based on all the evidence.

Yesterday, Samsung lawyer John Quinn tried to get the court to admit the evidence again; however, Judge Lucy Koh said she would not as she had already heard three motions to reconsider the point. Quinn persisted to the point where Koh warned that she would sanction him if he continued.

Apple's legal team is calling Samsung's actions contemptible and Koh has called an immediate meeting with Quinn.

"Tell Mr. Quinn I'd like to see him today," Koh said. "I want to know who drafted the press release, who authorized it from the legal team."

We'll update this story as it develops...

@Jason H ---- Man, get serious now! Where from have you acquired all this 'inside information' about Ninshimori? From Samsung/Android forums?!? Or maybe you're a layer or legal advisor for Samsung? These are all standard procedures with perfectly balanced rules/laws and reasonings. Try to get a bit more serious now. You're at least childish and ridiculous!...

Racial slurs demonstrate more contemptible behavior than any legal action, contemptible or not. Stop using them; they are irrelevant at best and a perpetuation of a vile "other"-ization of the perfectly human people of an entire country/ethnicity solely upon the basis of a single company's legal team's actions. Do you deserve to be lumped in with the people who committed the wrongs at Enron? You'd chafe at the mere insinuation that you're like those people, yet that is what you are doing.

A lot of people complained about Apple suing this company and that company. Yes, but Apple is aggressive yet by-the-books in pursuing law cases. And Samsung, as demonstrated here, is despicable.
