Samsung ordered to pay Apple $290.45 million

Samsung logoA U.S. jury in a California federal court on Thursday awarded Apple $290.45 million in a damages retrial against Samsung Electronics.

Apple had requested $379.8 million, while Samsung argued that it should have to pay $52.7 million.

The verdict covers 13 older Samsung devices that a previous jury found were among 26 Samsung products that infringed Apple patents.

Samsung is expected to appeal.

"For Apple, this case has always been about more than patents and money," Apple said in a statement. "It has been about innovation and the hard work that goes into inventing products that people love. While it's impossible to put a price tag on those values, we are grateful to the jury for showing Samsung that copying has a cost."

Today's verdict is the latest in a series of court fights between Apple and Samsung.

Last year, Apple was awarded over $1 billion after a jury said Samsung copied various iPhone features.

In March U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh upheld about $600 million of that verdict but ordered a retrial on the rest, ruling that the previous jury had made some errors. She ordered a retrial of that portion of the original award.

A second patent trial, based on newer products like the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy 4, is scheduled for March 2014.
