Apple Wins $1 Billion In Samsung Trial

On Friday, a California jury ruled Samsung guilty of 7 out of 8 patent infringement claims by Apple in a case which dragged on for several weeks with the two companies at each other’s necks. The verdict seemed very early, with the jury only debating for 22 hours over the course of three days.

Apple was awarded $1.05 billion in damages, sort of a compromise between the two companies’ goals: Apple had wanted $2.5 billion in damages, and Samsung wanted $422 million in the case of a countersuit. Samsung had no comment after the surprisingly quick decision, but they are expected to appeal to a higher court.
