Apple vs. Samsung Debate
I'm writing a research paper on the Apple vs Samsung court cases. Does anyone know how it truly started? Seemed to start shortly after the death of Steve Jobs due to patent infringement that was never mentioned before the CEO's death....

I believe the first shot was taken by Apple when they started suing all Android phone makers because Steve Jobs hated Android.
You'll need to do your own research to get a reference and specific info though, do your own essays

You need to do more research. Have you read Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs? Jobs started it himself:
"I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong. I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."

I believe Apple were discussing issues with HTC and Samsung for some time before any official action was taken. As all of those talks would have been confidential, it may be some time before we ever discover the truth.
Here's one link (from Fortune in March 2010) to get you started:
