Apple, Samsung battle over $1B verdict

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Neither side in a bitter patent battle is satisfied with Apple Inc.’s $1 billion jury verdict over Samsung Electronics after a three-week trial this summer.

Samsung wants a new trial. Apple is seeking an additional $707 million in damages and interest.

The two companies filed a blizzard of legal papers late Friday and early Saturday with their demands that a federal judge in San Jose significantly amend — or toss out altogether — the jury’s Aug. 24 verdict.

The jury found that 26 Samsung products ripped off Apple’s technology at the heart of its iPhones and iPads.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has scheduled a Dec. 6 hearing to discuss the myriad issues raised by both companies. Samsung says it will appeal if Koh turns down its demands.
