Apple Inc. won more than $290 million in damages from Samsung Electronics Co. for patent infringement on Thursday in a do-over trial that restored most of the amount cut from the iPhone maker's jury victory in 2012.
SAN JOSE, Calif. ó A Silicon Valley jury has ordered Samsung Electronics to pay Apple $290 million for copying vital iPhone and iPad features.
The verdict Thursday covers 13 older Samsung devices that a previous jury found were among 26 Samsung products that infringed Apple patents.
The previous jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion. But U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh ordered the new trial and tossed out $450 million of the damages after concluding the previous jury miscalculated the amount Samsung owed.
Samsung appealed that verdict and is expected to appeal the latest verdict.
A third trial is scheduled for March to consider Apple's claims that Samsung's newest devices on the market also copied Apple's technology.
