Part of the jury's job, regardless of expertise, was to review the prior art. If they found it convincing, then the design patent was invalid. If invalid then Samsung could not have infringed.

The juror appears to be saying that they found the prior art stuff a bit too complex so skipped it and concentrated on the infringement.

If they did do this then they completely missed the point on the trade dress issue.
