Court throws out $368M FaceTime judgment against Apple

A federal appeals court today tossed out a jury order requiring Apple to pay VirnetX $368.2 million in damages, Re/code reports. Apple was originally required to pay the amount for infringing VPN patents in FaceTime — the judgment was made in November 2012. The appeals court agreed that Apple did infringe patents, but ruled that the damages were incorrectly calculated. Now, the case returns to the U.S. District Court in Tyler, Texas, with a new damages total likely to come in the future.
