Late Friday night, Apple filed a motion with the Northern California District Court requesting an addition $707 million in damages on top of the more than $1 billion that it was originally awarded by a jury earlier this summer.
The motion asks for an additional $535 million for design infringement and “willful infringement” of Apple’s utility patents, as well as a $121 million that would compensate for Samsung’s sales while the jury deliberated. Apple also asked for $50 million in, “prejudgment interest on damages through December 31,” according to Reuters. In Apple’s motion, it also said that if the original damages award was reviewed at Samsung’s request, it wanted an additional $155.8 million (not counted in the $707 million) for, “five infringing products where the jury awarded less than the minimum amount calculated by Samsung’s damages expert,” reported ComputerWorld.
Finally, Apple filed a separate motion to seek new judgments concluding that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 “infringes and dilutes Apple’s protectable iPadTrade Dress; that the Tab 10.1 infringes the D’889 patent; and that Samsung’s accused smartphones dilute Apple’s combination iPhone Trade Dress.”
Samsung also filed a motion saying that the court had placed unprecedented constraints on time and evidence during the trial, “for a patent case of this complexity and magnitude.” Samsung then requested a new trial, without the limitations imposed by the first. Earlier this week, Samsung said it would add the iPhone 5 to its existing patent lawsuits in the US.
