Apple has a Good Day in Court – Busts Smartphone Patent Claim and Judge Says Samsung must Pay for Patent Infringement
Apple and Samsung have sired their dirty laundry across the globe over the past couple of years. Each sued the other for patent infringement in a multitude of countries. In some places, Apple won. In others, it was Samsung.
The U.S. District Court famously sided with Apple in August of 2012. Shortly thereafter, District Court Judge Lucy Koh reduced the total amount of damages that Samsung should pay by nearly half. Of course, Samsung appealed and a new trial was set to reconsider damages owed. As of Monday night, Nov. 25, the U.S. District Court rejected Samsung’s request to postpone the patent damage trial and ruled that it will move forward as planned. Score one for Apple.
