Judge Koh shoots down Apple's request for a ban and Samsung's motion for a new trial
posted by Alan F. / Dec 18, 2012, 12:59 AM
Judge Koh also denied Samsung's motion seeking a new trial. The decision vindicates jury foreman Velvin Hogan whom Samsung alleged was biased against the Korean manufacturer because of a legal issue Hogan had with Samsung partner Seagate Technology. There was alsao some question about Hogan's legal knowledge as he took over the jury during deliberations.
Meanwhile, the judge still needs to rule on the damages awarded. Since Samsung was found by the jury to willfully infringe on some Apple patents, Apple has the right to ask the judge to triple the damages on some parts of the $1.05 billion award. It is seeking an additional $121 million from its rival. Samsung has asked the judge to cut the damage amount based on what it sees as incorrect calculations by the Hogan-led jury.
Samsung still intends to appeal the decision, as is its right. Both tech giants will face each other in another trial at the same courthouse sometime in 2014.

Her entire quote is just competitive business. If that's the case, Microsoft should sue Apple for OSX.

The fun part is how much SS has to pay now. I think the calculations that the jury made was a total mess. And Apple garbage Steve Jobs patent will be invalidated too. After all this there is still Court of Appeals and it will be a hollow victory at best for Apple

Personally, I was surprised that SS went with the "foreman's biased" as its lead argument. I thought the issue was that the jury didn't follow the instruction given it -- more through incompetence as opposed to a vendetta -- resulting in a mistrial. But, then, I'm not an attorney; I play one online.

You can't pay for fair use.

Please cite the precedent for that. Specifically the non-existant precedent that allows a company to knowingly violate patents in the making of a product and profit off of it without paying for it. Apple knew that the patents existed and refused to pay for them. Fair use=/=free.

It will be interesting to see how Judge Koh rules on damages, given the recent invalidation of Apple patents that I believe are at the heart of the trial.... Apple could be looking at a Pyrrhic victory.

I think it is better to banned Samsung in this particular world. The phone they produced is getting worse. Like the Galasy S3. Nothing much in there, it shows laggness. And sometimes the screen froze and restart. I just use it for about six month and it shows this kind of shows for me. I think I should swith back to Iphone or maybe Nokia Lumia 920 that kinda attract me a lot.

That why you Dunknown that S3 is good. Apple fan pretending to own high end smartphone. iPhone is an dumb phone too restrictive to be called a smartphone.

iPhone is a dumb phone to me. You don't have to agree. Besides, i only pay for item that would serve my long term interest. Apple want to remove choices, so i buy samsung to defend it. Lawsuit do cost lots of money and apple has truckload of it and are bullying competitors with lawsuits. I am not a fanboy of any brand. I only serve my interest.
