Apple’s latest win against Samsung didn’t happen in the court; it took place in the workplace. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Apple has added Samsung’s Jim Mergard to its growing list of top industry talent.

Mergard is a chip industry veteran who joined Samsung after a 16-year stint at AMD. At AMD, he reportedly worked on Brazos, a successful line of processors for low-end portable computers that competed favorably with Intel’s Atom processor. Apple, not surprisingly, declined to comment on Mergard’s employment.
