Apple Seeks Additional $700 Million in Damages From Samsung
Apple is asking for a permanent U.S. sales ban on Samsung devices and an additional $707 million on top of the billion dollar verdict won last month, reports Reuters.
Apple wants an injunction to cover "any of the infringing products or any other product with a feature or features not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products."
In a motion filed late Friday U.S. time, Apple sought a further $400 million damage award for design infringement by Samsung; $135 million for willful infringement of its utility patents; $121 million in supplemental damages based on Samsung's product sales not covered in the jury's deliberation; and $50 million of prejudgment interest on damages through December 31. The requests together come to $707 million.
Samsung has asked for a new trial.
