Apple Inc. (AAPL) awarded $119 million in damages from Samsung

Posted May 3, 2014

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been awarded damages from Samsung, but it was not even close to what it was seeking: $119 million out of the $2.2 billion sought. Samsung was awarded damages of $158,000 over a patent. The damages may change slightly next week pending the “fix of a glitch” by Apple’s lawyers. The glitch concerns patent ‘172, which the jury failed to assign damages for. The jury will decide the damages on Monday. All of Samsung’s accused devices were cleared of infringing on Apple’s unified search ‘959 patent, but were all found to infringe the “quick links” ‘647 patent. Some devices were found to infringe the ‘721 slide to unlock image patent as well as the ‘449 patent. No infringements were were found for the ‘414 background synchronization and ‘239 patents.
