Apple, Samsung fail to settle before March trial

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Apple and Samsung have failed to settle their patent dispute despite a daylong meeting between top Samsung executives and Apple CEO Tim Cook hosted by a mediator earlier this month.

That's according to a court filing the companies made Friday in the 2-year-old case before Judge Lucy Koh in the U.S. District Court in San Jose.

While the two sides said they remain willing to work through a mediator, the lack of a settlement points them toward a trial in March.

The world's top two smartphone makers have waged legal battles over mobile devices since Apple accused Samsung of copying the iPhone and the iPad in 2011. Later, Samsung claimed Apple used its technologies without permissions, expanding battles to courts in Asia, Europe and North America.
