Samsung (005930) knows that it’s pushing its luck by asking for a full retrial of its patent case with Apple (AAPL). FOSS Patents points out a recent Samsung court filing that acknowledges seeking a new trial against Apple could lead to Apple seeking “even more damages on these products” than the $1 billion that it originally won in the previous patent trial. Samsung’s acknowledgement of potential risks in seeking a retrial comes just weeks after Judge Lucy Koh substantially reduced the damages the company had to pay to Apple down to just under $600 million. All the same, it seems the company is willing to roll the dice if it opens up the possibility to paying Apple nothing in the ongoing patent dispute.
