Apple hit with nearly $440M judgment in VirnetX patent suit

After losing in its patent dispute trial with VirnetX, Apple has been hit with a $439.7 million judgment after a U.S. district court denied all of the company’s motions, TechCrunch reports. That figure is higher than the original $368.2 million ruling against Apple from the 2012 trial, but less than the $625 million figure in last year’s decision. On a separate track, all four of the patents in question — which have ties to Apple’s FaceTime technology among other applications — have already been invalidated by the Patent and Trademark Office, but that case is still ongoing as well, and is non-binding until all appeals have been exhausted. As for this current court loss, Apple confirmed it is once again appealing the outcome.
