Jury awards Apple $290 million in damages re-trial
The re-trial covered 14 devices including the Samsung Galaxy Prevail, Samsung Gem, Samsung Indulge, Samsung Infuse 4G, Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T, Samsung Captivate, Samsung Continuum, Samsung Droid Charge, Samsung Epic 4G, Samsung Exhibit 4G, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Google Nexus S 4G, Samsung Replenish, and Samsung Transform. In addition, on Monday, the U.S. Federal Circuit of Appeals in Washington, D.C. ordered Judge Koh to consider a sales ban in the U.S. for some of the products found to have infringed on Apple's patents.
The fun and festivities aren't done. In March, a whole new patent trial between Apple and Samsung will begin with a new crop of more recent Samsung devices involved. Judge Lucy Koh will once again be presiding over the trial.
