Apple-Samsung patent partial retrial set for November
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - A US judge ordered a new trial for November to review a portion of the damages tossed out in the landmark patent case involving Apple and Samsung.
Judge Lucy Koh set the case for Nov 19, according to the northern California district court docket.
The new trial became necessary after the judge cut some US$450 million from a damage award of more than US$1 billion to be paid by Samsung in a case in which the US firm accused its South Korean rival of copying technology from the iPhone and iPad.
Judge Koh, in her ruling in March, affirmed the remainder of the award, amounting to US$598.9 million.
