- It's a nice win for Apple (AAPL +1.1%) as a jury awards it $290M in its patent damages retrial with Samsung (SSNLF, SSNGY). Apple had asked for $380M, while Samsung argued it owed $52M.
- The award comes on top of the $598.9M granted to Apple in its 2012 infringement suit against Samsung. The jury in that trial had originally awarded Apple $1.05B, but Judge Koh later reduced the figure, arguing the jury had miscalculated how much Samsung owed.
- Like the original trial, the retrial took place in San Jose, next door to Apple's hometown of Cupertino.
