In the following post Mikehd25 does a nice job of detailing the possible clerical error here.
There are a few key facts to be derived from this information.
The Jury was almost certainly working with the $493M damages estimate, including $451M for Google. This estimate was provided by Dr. Becker for the period Sept 15, 2005 - Sept 2012.
The laches ruling reduced this to Sept 15, 2011 through Sept 2012, and the jury decided that this shorter period represented 35% of the total damages.
The jury applied 35% to the total $493M figure to get damages amounts for AOL, Gannet, Target and IAC.
Did the jury intentionally use 3.5% for the Google damages resulting in a 15.9M settlement, or was this an error in calculation?
If 3.5% was used intentionally, will the judge accept this amount?
If not, can the Judge reverse this apparent miscalculation?
I'm not a lawyer, and don't know how this kind of thing works in court.
