Last week we heard a rumor that Apple were seeking to increase the damages that Samsung has to pay it for infringing on Apple patents, Samsung we originally ordered to ay Apple a total of over $1.05 billion.
We previously heard that Apple may be seeking up to $3 billion in damages, and now Apple has filed a request for an additional $707 million in damages, which would mean that Samsung would end up paying over $1.7 billion.
Samsung has also asked the court for a new trial, they have basically said that they were not treated fairly in the previous trial, you can see the statement from Samsung below.
“The Court’s constraints on trial time, witnesses and exhibits were unprecedented for a patent case of this complexity and magnitude, and prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims,” lawyers for the company claimed in court documents.
