Damages from Apple v Samsung legal case will be recalculated by new jury

The $1 billion in damages awarded after last year’s US-based Apple/Samsung legal battle will need to be recalculated following a decision made by the judge who presided over the case. Judge Lucy Koh has removed just over $450 million (around £300 million) from the damages figure, noting that Samsung appeared not to have been made aware of all the Apple patents as early as Apple had claimed.

A new jury will now decide a revised figure.

Intellectual property analyst Florian Mueller said in a blog post that “Apple could try to immediately collect the $598.9 million that the judge didn't adjust, but it's unlikely that it will physically receive any money before the final resolution of this dispute.”
