Apple case: Samsung’s $1 billion bill reduced by $450 million

Apple case: Samsung's $1 billion bill reduced by $450 million

Washington: A US judge has erased nearly half of the one billion dollars in damages that a jury decided Samsung should pay Apple, a report has said.

US District Court Judge Lucy Koh lowered the damages awarded to Apple Inc. by 450.5 million dollars, saying jurors had not properly followed her instruction in calculating some of the damages.

The ruling came in a high-profile trial over the rights to the design and technology running some of the world”s most popular smartphones and tablet computers.

She also concluded that mistakes had been made in determining when Apple had first notified Samsung about the alleged violations of the patents for its trend-setting iPhone and IPad.

The ruling reduced Samsung Electronics’ bill to just under 599 million dollars, Fox News reports.

Koh also ordered a new trial on Apple”s allegations that Samsung stole its ideas for more than a dozen different smartphones and tablet computers that include several models in Samsung”s hot-selling Galaxy line-up.

According to the report, the new trial leaves open the possibility that Samsung”s damages bill could rise back up toward one billion dollars, or even higher, depending on the findings of a new jury.
