Samsung wants the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its appeal regarding on-going patent litigation with Apple. Last week, a federal U.S. court refused to hear Samsung's appeal and upheld a lower court's decision. Taking the case to the U.S. Supreme Court is Samsung's last avenue of defense in order to escape paying Apple hundreds of millions of dollars in damages. The original case was decided by a jury in 2012 and awarded Apple more than $1 billion. The total amount of damages has been reduced to about $548 million, but Samsung still wants to avoid paying it. "The questions present issues of enormous importance to patent litigation and the scope of innovation, especially in high-technology industries," said Samsung in paperwork filed this week. The Supreme Court may decide to hear the case in mid 2016.
