Jury set to decide how much Samsung owes Apple
SAN JOSE, California (AP) — A Silicon Valley jury has asked a judge for calculators to help it determine how much Samsung Electronics owes Apple for copying key features of the iPhone and iPad.
The federal judge presiding over the patent trial granted the jury’s request Tuesday before the smartphone rivals’ lawyers delivered their closing arguments. The one-week trial is being held to determine damages for 13 of the 26 devices an earlier jury said Samsung infringed Apple’s patents in making.
Apple Inc. is demanding $380 million. Samsung counters that it only owes $52 million for using features such as “pinch-to-zoom” in the 13 older-generation products.
The jury is expected to begin deliberating Tuesday afternoon.
