Apple believes that the judge in charge of it’s patent lawsuit against Samsung erred and wants $85m from the dropped damages to be reinstated. Apple filed the suit against Samsung on 15th April, 2011.
Apple was pretty disappointed with the March ruling that dropped more than $450m in patent damages from the $1.05 billion it received in August after the patent infringement trial. Judge Lucy Koh ordered a new trial on fourteen Samsung products and dropped $450,514,650 in damages from the $1.05 billion.
Apple filed a Conditional Motion for reconsideration of order granting new damages trial on Galaxy II AT&T and Infuse 4g, and also requests that the judge reinstate $40,494,356 for Galaxy II and $44,792,974 for Infuse 4g. Koh granted a new trial as the jury had not compensated Apple properly for the Samsung sales before 15th April, 2011. But both the parties have agreed in a joint pre-trial agreement that Galaxy II AT&T and Infuse 4g were sold after 15th April.
