VirnetX seeks $190 million more from Apple in addition to FaceTime and iMessages ban
The suit was remanded back to lower court, which is when VirnetX was awarded the $625 million. On Wednesday, the company returned to court to ask the judge for an additional $190 million. Besides the money, VirnetX now wants the court to issue an injunction that would ban the use of FaceTime and iMessages. VirnetX says that it wants Apple to shut down these features because of "lost sales and reputational harm caused by Apple's distribution of the infringing features." Apple, for its part, is asking for a new trial, claiming that VirnetX's lawyers made some misrepresentations in court.
