Judge Lucy Koh rules that Samsung didn't willfully infringe on Apple patents

Judge Koh: Samsung did not willfully infringe on Apple patents

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Jan 30, 2013 8:38 am

The Apple versus Samsung lawsuit just got more interesting, with Judge Lucy Koh handing down some of the first rulings in the case's post-trial proceedings. Koh granted an Apple motion to invalidate some claims of a Samsung patent, but denied five others.

Koh found th at Samsung did not act willfully in infringing on Apple's patents, which means Apple's chance of getting triple damages associated with the suit are now gone. Koh rejected Samsung's request for a new trial, too. What happens from here is anyone's guess, but we could see a reduction in the $1.049 billion infringement verdict, but she hasn't offered any rulings on that just yet.
