Samsung loses again to Apple in U.S. patent jury trial; ordered to pay $119.6 million

Another jury in San Jose, California has rendered a verdict in a second patent trial between Samsung and Apple. CNET reports that the eight members of the jury found that Samsung’s devices violated two of Apple’s patents and ordered the company to pay $119.6 million to the team in Cupertino, California.

That’s still far less than the $2.6 billion penalty that Apple asked the jury to consider at the beginning of the trial a few weeks ago. It’s also less than the over $1 billion penalty Samsung was ordered to pay Apple in a separate patent court fight in 2012.

Specifically, the jury found that all of the Samsung devices that Apple listed in its case violated its 647 “quick links” patent, while some of them infringed on its 72 “slide to unlock” patent. The jury also decided that Apple had infringed on Samsung’s 449 “photo and video organization” patent. It ordered that Apple pay Samsung just $158,400 for its infringement.

Documents presented by Apple during the trial later leaked online which showed that the company was aware it was not doing enough to meet consumer or wireless carriers demands in terms.
