Jury awards $290 million towards damages to Apple in case retrial
The jury has given their verdict in the partial retrial of the Apple vs Samsung case. After being awarded a hefty sum of $1.05 billion in damages to Apple, judge Lucy Koh reduced the damages by $450.5 million as she considered the number to be based on some wrong calculation.
The new jury has now ruled that Samsung needs to pay a sum of $290 million, in addition to $598 million from the first case, taking the total to $888 million.
It goes without saying that Samsung will contest the damages further in appeals and post-trial motion, so we’ll have to wait for the word from the judge for the final figure.
