Apple wants $180 million more in damages from patent infringer Samsung

“Just over a week after Samsung paid Apple more than $548 million for infringing the patents and designs of the iPhone, Apple has asked a U.S. court to force its biggest smartphone rival to cough up even more,” Andrew Chung reports for Reuters.

“In court papers filed on Wednesday, Apple Inc. said Samsung Electronics Co Ltd. owes nearly $180 million in supplemental damages and interest,” Chung reports. “These further damages relate to five Samsung devices that infringed Apple’s patents and were sold after a 2012 jury verdict finding Samsung liable in the dispute.”
