Apple seeks to recoup cut damages from Samsung patent infringement

Judge Lucy Koh had cut the original award after determining the original jurors miscalculated

No matter how weary the courts may become over the Samsung/Apple patent wars, the two companies’ legal departments seem content to continue dueling to the death. The latest volley: the damages from the big August 2012 infringement ruling in Apple’s favor.

Apple is seeking to recoup more than $411 million in damages from Samsung that a judge cut from last year’s $1.05 billion award in the original Samsung/Apple patent fight. A district court will now determine the actual extent of Samsung’s damages, which will be juror’s “sole job,” rather than reevaluating the merits of the original case.
