Samsung Loses $119 Million To Apple In Patent Case

The jury found Samsung phones infringed two Apple patents and ordered the company to pay $119.6 million to Apple. In this latest round of Apple and Samsung’s long-running patent feud, the iPhone maker accused the Korean electronics giant of infringing five of its software patents. It is seeking $2.2 billion in damages. Samsung countersued Apple for copying two of its patents and is seeking $7 million. Apple has said Samsung has artificially low-balled its damages request to devalue patents.




The trial was the second time the two companies squared off in Northern California in front of U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh. In the first trial, argued in 2012, Samsung was found to have infringed on six Apple hardware patents and Apple was awarded $930 million.
