Apple’s $1 Billion Verdict Against Samsung Left Intact

Apple Inc.’s $1.05 billion damages award against Samsung Electronics Co. from its patent-infringement trial in San Jose, California, was left intact after a judge denied Apple’s bid to increase the award.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose yesterday declined to increase the award after she found Samsung’s infringement wasn’t willful. The ruling was one of many post-trial decisions Koh issued yesterday denying both companies’ bids for a new trial and leaving largely untouched the jury’s finding in August that Samsung infringed six mobile-device patents.
