Samsung has been ordered to pay out $290 million to Apple in a retrial of the major, over-$1 billion patent infringement case that made headlines last year. Samsung won a retrial of around $450 million of the damages when Judge Lucy Koh found that a portion of the award was subject to re-evaluation.
Apple had been seeking $380 million total from this decision, but Samsung was looking to pay only $52 million, so while neither side got exactly what they wanted, Apple came out more or less a winner. The lawyers in the case have a chance to go over the figures and dispute any numbers they take issue with, which they likely will, but for now that’s where the decision stands.
Samsung has been accused of paying out what it owed to Apple in small value coins in a number of false memes circulating the web, both when the original award went through and this time, too. It likely won’t do that, as it’s ridiculous, but it can’t be pleased with this result.
The eight member jury that awarded these damages was evaluating how much Samsung owes apple for the violation of five patents related to iPhone and iPad across 13 Samsung products in total.
