Samsung Ordered To Pay Apple Another $290 Million
On Thursday, a federal jury ordered that Samsung owes Apple another $290 million for infringing on patents, according to several reports from the court-room. This decision was part of a partial retrial from last year’s lawsuit between Samsung and Apple.
The jury in the case ruled that Apple was owed $1 billion from Samsung. Judge Lucy Koh ruled that over $400 million of that award was not properly calculated though.
Apple argued that they were owed a further $379 million and Samsung said that they should only owe $52 million for the damages. Aside from this decision, Samsung owes around $600 million to Apple for other patents. The jury consisted of six women and two men.
The jury deliberated for around three days before deciding on a verdict. The jury requested for additional paper, pens, and better lunch. They also asked for a copy of the sketches of them done by a courtroom artist.
There is another case set for trial next year in front of Judge Koh revolving around a new generation of Samsung products. Samsung and Apple are both appealing different parts in the very complex case. The total due to Apple is now around $929.83 million between the two cases.
