Apple Plays Odds for Overturning $533 Million Verdict

Updated on

If Apple Inc.’s past is anything to go by, it won’t have to worry about paying the $533 million that a jury said the company owes for infringing patents related to data management in iTunes.

The iPhone maker has already gotten two big patent verdicts that it lost in the same Texas district tossed, and has pledged to fight the Feb. 24 jury decision. The company plans to appeal through a separate court in Washington where judges have sought to rein in the ability of patent holders to extract high royalty payments from companies.
