Jury Awards Apple $1.0B in Patent Battle Against Samsung

After three days of deliberation, the jury from the US District Court trial in San Jose, awarded Apple more than $1 billion in damages on April 24th.

The jury decided Samsung had infringed on six patents by copying the look and feel of Apple’s mobile devices.

Apple had originally sought $2.5 billion in damages. Samsung, of course, will appeal the decision and take it right up to the Supreme Court if necessary.

Apple will request that the court order Samsung to pull its most popular smartphones and Galaxy tablets from the US market and bump up the total damages to $3 billion.

It’s expected that US District Judge Lucy Koh will rule on those issues starting on Sept. 20th.
