Apple Wins New Trial Over $533 Million Patent Damage Award

Updated on

Apple Inc. won a new trial on damages that will likely mean a large reduction in the $533 million awarded to a Texas patent owner in February over iTunes software.

A federal judge in Texas Tuesday threw out the award and ordered a new trial related only to damages to begin in September. The judge separately denied Apple’s request for a new trial on the question of whether the company infringed patent rights.
