Apple seeks extra half-billion in Samsung case despite invalidated patent

Apple Samsung Patent Damages

Apple (AAPL) and Samsung (005930) are back in court battling over the particulars of their earlier trial in which Apple was awarded more than $1 billion in damages when 26 Samsung devices were found to have infringed various Apple patents. Since that ruling, a key patent Samsung was found to be infringing was tentatively found to be invalid — that finding was recently reiterated, FOSS Patents reports — and Samsung is now arguing that its damages should be reduced by $600 million according Bloomberg. Apple is arguing that it should receive an additional $536 million in damages, however, disregarding the USPTO’s findings entirely. The judge presiding over the case is expected to make a decision soon.
