Jury Orders Samsung to Pay $119 Million to Apple in Patent Case

A federal court jury determined that Samsung infringed Apple smartphone patents and awarded $119.6 million in damages.

The panel delivered its verdict Friday in San Jose, Calif., putting an end to the latest clash between the two tech giants.

It also found that Apple infringed Samsung patents and awarded $158,000 in damages.

Apple had sought $2.2 billion in damages, claiming Samsung stole five of its smartphone patents, including slide-to-lock, universal searching, quick linking, automatic word correction and background syncing.

Two years ago, a different jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $930 million after finding it had used Apple technology to create older generation devices. Samsung is appealing that order.
