$120 Million Apple Patent Win Against Samsung Reinstated

$120 Million Apple Patent Win Against Samsung Reinstated

Most of the money in the new Samsung verdict, however, was awarded to Apple for the latter detection patent, which the previous panel said wasn't infringed. However, this past week, a jury determined that the original verdict never should have been overturned.

Samsung initially got its fine down from $1 billion to around half that amount (chump change for both of these companies), and will now ask the US Supreme Court to rule against those damages too.

Overturning an earlier decision, a USA appeals court on Friday reinstated a lower-court verdict that Samsung Electronics pay Apple US$120 million for violating three iPhone patents. Instead, it ordered the trial judge to consider whether the judgment should be increased based on any intentional infringement by Samsung.

Apple appealed that decision, arguing that the panel relied on extra-record evidence "none of which, it said, was of record and that the panel appears to have located only through independent research", according to court records.

No. 2 Ohio State thumps Rutgers, 58-0
No. 4 MI needed the spectacular play to seal its latest victory, the first one that wasn't a rout this season. Barrett know what it takes to push through that edge to the other side. "I made the right decision", he said.

The case began in May of 2014 when a verdict directed Samsung to pay Apple $119.6 million for using its 'slide to unlock, ' autocorrect and quick-link features without permission.

Dissenting judges in Friday's decision criticized the legal reasoning of the court's majority, as well as its decision to issue a new ruling in the case without following its usual practice of giving the litigants the opportunity to present a new round of legal arguments to the court. The outcome will determine how much Samsung owes Apple for infringing on design patents for the iPhone.

In February, a panel of judges at the appeals court ruled against Apple, saying the slide-to-unlock patent and an Apple spell correction patent were invalid. Part of that dispute has been appealed to the Supreme Court, which will hear it on Tuesday.
