Original case decision
Area Court Judge Lucy Koh, in striking $450.5 million of the first judgment against Samsung, requested another trial to start in November 2013 to recalculate a portion of the harms for the situation. Samsung, at last, paid Apple $548 million in harms in December 2015.
The sum depended on the aggregate benefits Samsung produced using its encroaching gadgets. For this situation, Samsung sold 10.7 million encroaching gadgets, producing $3.5 billion in income.
Only $399 million of the $548 million paid to Apple — considered the “additional remedy” amount under Section 289 of the Patent Act of 1952 (35 U.S.C. 289) — is being examined in the 2018 retrial. The additional $149 million in damages Samsung paid Apple isn’t at stake.
