Apple requests $85 million damages against Samsung be reinstated

“Contending that the judge presiding over its patent lawsuit against Samsung erred, Apple has asked that $85 million in dismissed damages be reinstated,” Steven Musil reports for CNET.

“In a March ruling in the landmark case, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh cut damages on some Samsung products found to infringe Apple’s patents, carving $450.5 million off the original $1.05 billion judgment and calling for a new trial on the damages to recalculate them,” Musil reports. “However, Apple has complained that Koh made a mistake in reducing at least part of the damages by excluding two devices.”

Musil reports, “Koh granted the new damages trial after determining that the jury improperly compensated Apple for Samsung sales before April 15, 2011, the date of Apple’s original complaint. Both parties have already agreed in a joint pretrial agreement that both Galaxy SII AT&T and Infuse 4G were sold after April 15, 2011, a stipulation Apple called ‘binding and conclusive on the factual issue.'”
