As for why Chimicles requires testimonials, this is due to the current status of the case. The judge overseeing the case announced that it would be adjudicated through arbitration – in which both parties would present their case to a third party who would make the decision. Usually, these third parties (arbitrators) are attorneys or retired judges or are considered “experts” in their field.
In order to present a strong crime, the best way is to gather as many witnesses as possible and tell them their first-hand testimony.
With more than 61 million Nintendo Switch units sold, there are plenty of stories that could convince the judge to find Nintendo at fault and possibly lead to a redesign of Joy-Con.
