Apple and Samsung: The case at a glance


• The ruling: A federal jury in California says Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad.

• Damages: The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion. An appeal is expected. A judge will later rule on whether to ban sales of Samsung products.

• About the battle: The U.S. trial is just the latest skirmish between the tech giants over product designs. Apple and Samsung have filed similar lawsuits in eight other countries. Samsung won in Korea earlier in the day.
