Apple is requesting that US$85 million in damages against Samsung be reinstated as the judge erred in dismissing jury-awarded damages for two Samsung devices, reports “CNET” (http://tinyurl.com/cpj4n2q).
In a March ruling in the case, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh cut damages on some Samsung products found to infringe Apple’s patents, carving $450.5 million off the original $1.05 billion judgment and calling for a new trial on the damages to recalculate them.
However, Apple has complained that Koh made a mistake in reducing at least part of the damages by excluding two devices.The company has filed a conditional motion with U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California asking Koh to reconsider her order granting a new trial on the jury-awarded damages she tossed related to the Galaxy S2 sold by AT&T and the Infuse 4G.
This is all part of the ongoing, global legal battle. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
