Apple and Samsung head back to court in November

Apple Samsung Damages Court

Judge Lucy Koh on Monday set a new trial date to determine the proper damages due to Apple in its ongoing patent battle with Samsung, Reuters reported. Koh determined that a new trial was needed because the jury had incorrectly calculated part of the damages. Apple was originally awarded $1.05 billion, however the federal judge slashed the amount by more than 40% to $450.5 million in March. The final ruling will likely see that award adjusted again, however. Koh ruled that Samsung and Apple will not be permitted to seek additional damages based on new sales data, products or theories, and the trial is must focus around the 13 Samsung devices that were found to infringe Apple’s technology in the original trial. The two companies are now set to face off in court beginning on November 12th.
