Posted by at 11:59 am on March 3, 2013

Judge Lucy Koh today issued an order that vacated approximately $450 million from the $1.05 billion in damages awarded by a jury to Apple last summer. The original case found Samsung guilty of infringing a number of Apple patents.

After examining the process the jury used to determine the damages, the judge determined the jury made several mistakes and that a new trial is necessary to adjust the damages for a total of 14 products. The new trial over damages will likely need a new jury, and may or may not result in higher or lower damages than the $450 million initially assigned. I

n the mean time, the judge said Apple is still entitled to $598.9 million in damages from Samsung. A timeframe for this new trial has not yet been set.
