Apple wins $120 million in Samsung patent case

The ongoing struggle between iPhone manufacturer Apple and Samsung came one enormous dollar figure closer to finality late last week with a U.S. jury ordering Samsung to pay Apple for patent violations relating to its portfolio of smartphone innovations. District Judge Lucy Koh of San Jose has ordered that the Korean smartphone manufacturer pay $120 million to Apple for violating two patents related to universal search and other touchscreen navigation features.

While Apple has been denied its full damages claim, it could potentially still win an injunction that would prevent the sale of certain Samsung phones in U.S. Markets. Koh will now decide if the infringement of these patents warrants the latter request.
