If you thought the Apple vs. Samsung legal fracas was over, you can’t be more wrong. After Samsung paid $548 million this month to settle its previous fines, Apple is now demanding an additional $180 million.
The new amount is for supplemental damages, that is, damages for infringements after the cutoff date of the jury trial, which is $178.7 million plus an additional $1.2 million prejudgement interest totaling around $180 million. Of course, Samsung will be fighting this demand in court.
The supplemental damages are for five Samsung phone models sold after 2012 that were found infringing upon the patents. We’ll have to wait and see which way this decision goes.[“source-businesstoday”]
