A judge tossed $532.9 million in damages levied against Apple earlier this year after reevaluating the results of the trial. In February, a jury found Apple guilty of infringing on three patents owned by Texas-based SmartFlash, a patent-holding company. Federal Judge Rodney Gilstrap believes the instructions he gave the jury likely "skewed" its understanding of how to award SmartFlash for the infringed patents. The jury's original award of $532.9 million has been vacated, but the judge scheduled a new trial for September to determine more appropriate damages.
