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.
