US court to review Apple, Samsung’s patent verdict

Samsung is seeking to overturn the verdict revealed in August this year

By CBR Staff Writer

A San Jose, California court in the US is set to review a jury’s decision which awarded Apple $1.05bn in damages against its rival Samsung Electronics.

US District Court Judge Lucy Koh is set to review the verdict revealed in August this year which found that the South Korean firm infringed six of seven Apple’s patents for mobile devices.

Samsung is seeking to overturn the previous verdict while Apple, which had initially demanded over $2.5bn in damages, is planning to add $500m more to the award and ask jury to ban the sale of over 20 Samsung devices in the US.

In October this year, a US trade panel judge, in a preliminary ruling, said that Samsung has infringed four of Apple patents to make its smartphones and tablets.

In November this year, Samsung had escalated its patent war against Apple by claiming that the iPhone maker’s new iPad mini infringes its eight patented technologies.

In response to Samsung’s claim, Apple had also claimed that six more Samsung products infringe its patents.

Last month, a US judge ordered Apple to reveal all details of its deals with HTC to its rival Samsung, in response to recent plea by Samsung.
