Judge Vacates $450M in Damages in Apple v. Samsung Case

Judge Lucy Koh today issued an order that vacated approximately $450 million from the $1.05 billion in damages awarded by a jury to Apple last summer. The original case found Samsung guilty of infringing a number of Apple patents. After examining the process the jury used to determine the damages, the judge determined the jury made several mistakes and that a new trial is necessary to adjust the damages for a total of 14 products. The new trial over damages will likely need a new jury, and may or may not result in higher or lower damages than the $450 million initially assigned. In the mean time, the judge said Apple is still entitled to $598.9 million in damages from Samsung. A timeframe for this new trial has not yet been set.

The jury made many mistakes

Following the case I thought the jury made many, many mistakes. They seemed to misunderstand that just because the two companies products did certain things in similar fashion that doesn't necessarily mean the underlying technology is the same. It was a very technical case and quite frankly people that do not know this stuff shouldn't have been on the jury. I follow tech fairly close and I probably shouldn't even have been on that jury.
Well...of course they did, they aren't experts in copyright law, and they aren't experts in tech either. In fact, if you are knowledgeable about copyright law and tech, you wouldn't be allowed to serve on the jury.

I'm not sure that juries s...
i am not sure that jury remotely understood any of technicalities of the case
its going some thing like Microsoft v/s Government case of 90s
