A federal appeals court has shut down Samsung's hopes of overturning a jury verdict that found it guilty of violating Apple's patents. In 2012, a jury found Samsung had willfully violated a number of Apple patents in handsets such as the Galaxy S and S2. The jury awarded Apple $1 billion in damages, though that figure has since been sliced down to about $548 million. The U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals this week upheld the core of Apple's allegations and refused to alter the lower court's decision. Samsung's only option left in this particular case is to go to the U.S. Supreme Court. A second patent case between Samsung and Apple, which Apple also won, is still winding its way through the appeals process. Apple and Samsung have settled a handful of other cases.
