Jury Says Samsung Owes Apple Another $290 Million
A federal jury today determined that Samsung owes Apple $290 million for violating the iPhone-maker's smartphone patents. Apple believed it was owed $380 million, while Samsung only wanted to pay $52 million. Twenty-six of Samsung's devices were found guilty of infringing on Apple's patents last year. Apple was originally awarded $1.05 billion, but the judge presiding over the case said the jury miscalculated a portion of the reward. This week's trial was to reassess the damages owed to Apple regarding 13 of the original 26 devices. Samsung now owes Apple a total of about $890 million.
