Apple Could Get More Than $1 Billion in Damages From Samsung With New Trial
While Judge Koh reduced the damages awarded to Apple in the company's first jury verdict, a new trial for those products could result in a potentially greater award, notes FOSS Patents.
Apple will still be able to demand far more than $450 million with respect to the 14 "vacated damages" products. If the new jury doesn't reevaluate liability, or if it does but arrives at a result materially consistent with the first jury's findings, and if the new jury adopts Apple's damages claims as the right number or alternatively decides to adopt a higher pecentage (than the first jury's 40%), then the total damages award could be substantially greater.
Samsung confirmed the possibility itself in a late-Friday filing, saying that "Apple can seek even more damages on these products in the new trial".
The second damages trial covers the Galaxy Prevail, Gem, Indulge, Infuse 4G, Galaxy SII AT&T, Captivate, Continuum, Droid Charge, Epic 4G, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Tab, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, and Transform.
