Appeals Court Says Samsung Owes Apple $120M
Oct 7, 2016, 10:41 AM by Eric M. Zeman
A federal appeals court today reinstated a $120 million patent verdict against Samsung. Samsung was initially found to be infringing on Apple's slide-to-unlock and autocorrect patents in 2014. Later, a three-judge panel reversed the decision and said Samsung didn't owe Apple damages. This week's decision was determined by a larger panel of judges that said the smaller panel didn't follow U.S. Supreme Court guidelines in reviewing the case. The court also upheld $160,000 in damages awarded to Samsung that Apple must pay over digital photo technology. Last year, Samsung paid Apple almost $550 million in damages stemming from a 2012 jury verdict. Apple hit Samsung with a number of patent-related complaints after the firm's Galaxy S handsets began to genuinely challenge the iPhone in the market.
