News Summary: Deliberations begin in Apple case

CASE GOES TO JURY: Deliberations began Wednesday in a multibillion-dollar patent-infringement case in California pitting Apple against Samsung over the design of iPhones and iPads.

THE OUTLOOK: Few experts expected a quick verdict, with so much money and market clout at stake.

COMPLEX CASE: It took the judge more than two hours to read the 109 pages of instructions to the jury. As a verdict is reached, jurors must fill out a 20-page form with dozens of check-off boxes. Jurors have several smartphones and tablets to help them determine which device is alleged to have violated what patent.
