Go Daddy CEO Warren Adelman is stepping down to become a special advisor for the domain-name firm.

“I have reached a juncture in my life when I would like to spend more time with my family,” Adelman said in a press release outlining the move.

The California trial is the biggest showdown yet in a global struggle in which Apple is carpet-bombing Samsung with intellectual property claims in the hopes of removing Samsung products from store shelves and forcing it to pay massive damages.
