Samsung hopes the Supreme Court will weigh in on its patent fight with Apple. The company has filed an appeal, asking the high court to review the verdicts reached in Apple's patent-related lawsuit. Samsung has two chief complaints. First, Samsung believes the jury that found it guilty of copying Apple's designs wasn't given enough information from the judge to interpret the law accurately. Samsung also finds fault in how design-related patent damages are generated. "Samsung is escalating this case because it believes that the way the laws were interpreted is not in line with modern times," said Samsung. "If the current legal precedent stands, it could diminish innovation, stifle competition, pave the way for design patent troll litigation and negatively impact the economy and consumers." Samsung wrote Apple a $548 million check to pay the damages earlier this month — more than two years after the initial verdict. Samsung told Apple it wants its money back if the verdicts are reversed upon appeal.
