exceptional reason to introduce something new that probably
needs to involve it not being available earlier (eg "Apple
tried to hide this and we only just found out").
What *appears* (again, we don't know - this is speculation)
to have happened is that Samsung simply didn't submit this
as evidence until after the appropriate deadline and Koh
didn't accept that they had a good reason for being late.
That's not unreasonable or the court being unfair/biased.
Yeah Apple has abused this to make statements Samsung must
be furious about not being able to show as misleading at
best and it's bad for the trial that these designs weren't
allowed, but why weren't they submitted on time? It might
be a mistake/oversight and that's really unfortunate, but if
so it's self inflicted... blame Samsung for not following
the rules, not Koh for enforcing them. Again, if that's
what happened. We don't know - maybe it was something else.
