Judge reduces damages Samsung must pay Apple

Apple Inc had a major setback in its ongoing mobile patents battle with Samsung Electronics on Friday, as a federal judge slashed a $1.05 billion jury award by more than 40 percent and ordered a new trial to determine damages.

AppleSamsungRulingCalifornia district court Judge Lucy Koh found that the jury awarded damages “based on a legally impermissible theory“. Koh struck about $450 million off of Apple’s award and ordered a retrial to determine the correct damages related to about a dozen of the Samsung smartphones and tablets at issue in the trial.

Even if she let stand Apple’s damages of $598.9 million for another 14 of the products, it doesn’t mean Apple won’t receive more than the $598 million, but it will have to go back to court to see how much money it can get.

We are pleased that the court decided to strike $450,514,650 from the jury’s award,” Samsung said in an e-mailed statement. “Samsung intends to seek further review as to the remaining award. We are also pleased that the court earlier found that Samsung had not acted willfully, denied Apple’s request for a permanent injunction, and denied Apple’s motion for increased damages.”

Meanwhile, Samsung and Apple were at odds over damages for post-trial sales. Apple wanted the clock to start on 1 July, Samsung wanted it to start after the conclusion of the trial. Judge Koh sided with Samsung and set it at 25 August.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment.
