Apple vs. Samsung: New legal round brewing
Apple is looking for Samsung to pay an extra $707 million on top of the $1 billion it owes after jury verdict. Samsung wants a new trial against Apple.
SAN FRANCISCO — 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.
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.
