Judge Lucy Koh said Friday that there were a couple of inconsistencies in the jury verdict that found Samsung guilty of infringing a number of Apple patents and awarding more than $1 billion in damages.
Judge Koh: There Are A Couple Inconsistencies in Apple-Samsung Verdict
There are at least two problems with the verdict, Koh said. For the Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G LTE, the jury found no infringement or inducement but awarded damages. In another count, the jury found no infringement of Apple’s utility patents but found inducement of infringement, a combination not possible according tot he jury instructions.
Koh sent the jury back down to clarify those two points, though both issues would not seem to affect the bulk of the jury’s ruling.""
