Samsung ordered to pay Apple $119.6m

A jury in California delivered its verdict in a federal court in San Jose on Friday in the latest lawsuit involving the two tech giants. Apple had sought $2bn at the trial, accusing Samsung of violating patents on smartphone features. The court also ruled that Apple infringed Samsung’s patents and awarded $158,000 in damages. Apple had sought $2.2bn after accusing Samsung of infringing five of its patents.
The patents were covering functions such as the "slide to unlock" from its devices. Samsung denied any wrongdoing and sought $6m after arguing Apple had infringed two of its smartphone patents related to camera use and video transmission.
