The U.S. district court judge that presided over the landmark patent trial between Apple and Samsung last summer has slashed $450.5 million from the $1.05 billion Apple was awarded by the jury, Bloomberg reported Friday. In addition, the judge said some Samsung products included in the previous ruling should get a new trial.
Judge Lucy Koh removed the $450.5 million from the award because they correspond to 14 Samsung devices that she says should get a new hearing as to whether they did infringe on Apple’s mobile patents. Those devices include, according to FOSS Patents:
Galaxy Prevail, Gem, Indulge, Infuse 4G, Galaxy SII (AT&T), Captivate, Continuum, Droid Charge, Epic 4G, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Tab, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, and Transform
If these products are still found to infringe on Apple’s patents in a new trial, Apple could win back that $450.5 million in damages, or perhaps get even more depending on what the new jury determines.
