Apple seeks new Samsung sales ban, additional damages

 

It seems the technology trial of the decade is not over yet: Apple has just requested a court order for a permanent ban of U.S. sales of all Samsung products that have been found to violate Apple patents, in addition to $707 million more in damages. This will bring the total from $1.05 billion in damages to $1.75 billion, an astronomical number even for a technological superpower such as Samsung. It looks like the patent war of the ages seems to be far from over as Samsung responded to Apple’s latest jab with their own request, this one for a completely new trial. Samsung claims that “the Court’s constraints on trial time, witnesses and exhibits were unprecedented for a patent case of this complexity and magnitude, and prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims,” and thus, is worthy of a new trial. If Samsung is granted such a lofty request, they may be able to dodge not only the initial financial blow, but can request an entirely new trial.
