Apple will be asking Judge Koh for tripling Samsung's fine to over $3 billion this Friday
Korea Times cites legal sources confirming for it that Apple will ask Judge Lucy Koh on the patent infringement hearing this Friday to up the damages rewarded by the jury against Samsung from $1.05 to over $3 billion.

This is allowed if a "willful infringement" is found, and the judge can easily triple the damages awarded to Apple, although it is debatable whether she will do so. She already upheld the injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, but tripling the patent infringement fines request will likely go through some serious scrutiny first. A reliable senior legal source has commented on the upcoming Apple demand:

By using that condition, Apple has decided to request the judge to order Samsung to pay more than $3 billion in the hearing on the San Jose verdict on Sept. 21 in California.
The decision means Apple want to quickly address the harm that Samsung’s infringing products are said to be causing. As has been the case throughout this trial, Apple is pressing its full advantage over the jurors’ decision.


"Apple lawyers still believe Samsung should pull its popular Galaxy line of devices including smartphones and tablets from the United States and leave the market to proprietary handsets from Apple and Microsoft," said another source.

Samsung's lawyer John Quinn is reportedly going to ask the judge the exact opposite of tripling the damages, namely tossing the whole jury verdict out, and we'll see what happens Friday, as not only Samsung, but other Android manufacturers and Google, too, are waiting the trial outcome with bated breath.

Doesn't Apple have enough money already? They're expected to sell over 5 million iPhones this weekend. They should be a political party. Democrat, Republican...Apple. Apple, we want your money and hate.

If apple does not like the heat get out the kitchen. Suing the competition will not keep you cool for long...

Completely not surprised, this falls directly in line with Apple's new legal philosophy. Apple, the nerd that became the new bully.

Are you freaking kidding me? It's business. Why are ya'll taking this so serious. Apple and Samsung don't care about any of us and only want our money too. Stop defending them like they're your mother.

What do you mean? Apple products are manufactured overseas using foreign designed and manufactured parts, and their cash is stored overseas to avoid taxes.

How is that not American?

Bhehe! Oups, a daisy! Pardon, oups a samsung! :) I keep my fingers crossed for Apple to succeed! Every thief deserves the asian manufacurer's destiny. One billion was really too small fine for this, anyway.

Anyone else notice Apple's "new Do Not Disturb" feature? Hmm.... smells like Motorola's SmartActions to me. And I actually use this particular smart action.

Pot, meet kettle.

Apple is scared now with their outdated OS...basically getting 'boring'. Samsung is way ahead of them. Apple should just go into the Sewing business, so they sue all day long...aaheoaheaohaoehoaheoahe. :)

@raphael007 what are you smoking they just sold 2 million preorders for the iPhone 5 and are probably about to sell also 10 million launch weekend if they can keep up with demand. That was the dumbest thing you could say they are not selling.

No , they sue because they fear Android. Apple is a very poor competitor. Sore loser I would say.
