Samsung and Apple have been in and out of court over the last seven years, just when we thought the case was resolved it looks like Samsung is appealing again.
Apple was recently awarded a final $539 million in damages from Samsung, the award was given by a jury in the trial. Samsung were previously found to have infringed on some of Apple’s patents.
The original award a few years back was over $1 billion although this was reduced and Samsung has challenged it ever since. Samsung is now saying that the latest reward is excessive and it looks like they will be going back to court again.
Samsung has now filed a post trial motion with the court and they are saying that the jury’s verdict of $539 million is not supported by any evidence, Samsung wants to paid just $28.085 million in damages. So it would appear that this case will continue for some time.
