Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. return to a Silicon Valley courtroom Thursday, as Samsung fights to get a federal judge to throw out or soften a $1.05 billion patent judgment against the Korean company.
The companies and their lawyers plan to petition U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh to reverse issues that didn’t go their way in a jury verdict issued in August. During the hearing in San Jose, California the companies are expected to squabble over the damage award, which ranks among the largest ever in cases involving intellectual property.
Samsung argues that hundreds of millions of dollars should be shaved off of the total damages, which Samsung has yet to pay.
Meanwhile, Apple is seeking $535 million more.
