Samsung seeks retrial of retrial; claims Apple used racial tactics to appeal to jury
Even though the total combined amount of the check that Samsung needs to cut has dropped from $1.05 billion to $930 million, Samsung is still not happy. The Korean based OEM is seeking a retrial of the retrial partly based on "racial bias". Samsung claims that Apple's attorneys compared Samsung to the Asian manufacturers that flooded the market with low-cost televisions and put several American companies into bankruptcy.
Samsung is asking Judge Koh to make a JMOL ruling (Judgment as a Matter of Law). Samsung says that Apple's case did not provide enough evidence to support a verdict in its favor. In other words, the defendant is seeking a directed verdict from Judge Koh, or a retrial of the retrial. For its part, Apple is also seeking a JMOL from the Judge.
If this sounds complicated, consider that early next year another patent trial between the two rivals will start. This time, a new jury will be asked to determine if some of Samsung's more recent devices infringed on Apple's patents. Samsung's request for a directed verdict can be found below.
