Apple-Samsung retrial begins; Apple seeking $380M in damages

Apple and Samsung have started a retrial for damages owed by Samsung for infringement of Apple patents. Attorneys for both companies have made opening statements — Apple is seeking $380 million in additional damages, while Samsung believes it should only pay $52 million. Apple was awarded $1.05 billion in August 2012 after Samsung was found guilty of violating numerous iPhone patents, but the awarded damages were reduced in March. Samsung now owes about $600 million, and the new damages will be owed on top of that amount — Apple is trying to get almost all of the full initial award back.

Apple attorney Harold McElhinney referenced an internal Samsung document as “conclusive evidence Apple lost sales because of Samsung.” Samsung’s attorney, Bill Price, said “Apple is asking for more money than it’s entitled to.” The difference in damage claims comes from lost profits — Apple maintains it’s owed money for lost profits, Samsung’s profits, and royalties, while Samsung doesn’t believe Apple is owed anything at all for lost profits.
