Home / News / Final decision in Apple vs Samsung patent lawsuit will come soon Apple sued Samsung back in 2012 claiming that the latter had made and sold some phones that infringed on several patents that it owned. The jury in the original case sided with Apple and ordered Samsung to pay $1.05 billion in damages. That was only the beginning of this legal drama, though, which is now approaching the better part of half a decade without a final resolution.The initial damages award of $1.05 billion was cut down by $450.5 million by District Court Judge Lucy Koh due to a jury error.

The first U.S. Apple vs Samsung battle has ended in late August, with a surprisingly bitter defeat for the South Korean Android maker – surprising not because Samsung was found to infringe on certain Apple patents, but because of the nature of the total Samsung defeat. Samsung was found to willfully infringe on 6 from its 7 patent claims Apple brought to this battle against its rival and was awarded $1.05 billion in compensatory damages. Meanwhile, the jury found Apple not to infringe any of Samsung’s patents, including the FRAND, or standards essential, ones.Sure, the fight is not yet over as the two companies are still duking it out in over 50 cases spread across 4 continents, and there are plenty more battles to be fought until we find a real winner, including at least one more U.S. case – although we’re probably see the two giants settle sooner or later even though that’s not an option right now.
