The six-year-old patent suit is about to head back to the place it was born to settle what should be the offending thing: the thing itself or its parts?
Samsung is currently off the hook for $399 million, but even with the Supreme Court's unanimous decision, the case continues.
The case, centered on three patents including the one about "slide to unlock," has reached an end. But will Samsung ask the Supreme Court to look in?
Four years post the initial ruling against Samsung, Apple still wants that company to pay its patent design infringement damages to the brim.
The Justice Department has taken Samsung's side in a years-long patent suit that has pitted away at Apple's patents and its awards.
Samsung successfully appealed a ruling that forced the company to pay Apple $120 million in damages. Apple says it should've had a jury in that process.
Of course it is: the company has received its damages and it does not want to risk retreading over the validity of the patents at concern.
Legal papers are a thick bunch. The language within them is about as close as you can get to a non-Newtonian fluid on paper without being a cornstarch slurry. Apple and Samsung have written their hefty shares of it over the past several years and Judge Lucy Koh had written hers on the part of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

Will this end up being another strike against Samsung in future continuations of patent suits? Is the whole folding display thing overplayed already? When will those two childr-uh, companies stop fighting? We don’t have the answers, just more questions as to what the heck Samsung is doing playing to its competitor in its patent art.
Specifically, figures 1B and 5 are showing off an extended home screen that’s been folded over one way and features a home row with an “iPod” app. You know, like Apple used to do with its older [...]
But spoiler alert: it’s not looking good for Samsung. It may not be nearly the $1.05 billion penalty the Korean OEM was looking at when the final gavel first came down in this case, but still having $548 million on the line isn’t a good option for the chaebol, either. One of the late developments we got in Apple’s patent suit was that a few of the patents Cupertino contended that Samsung infringed shouldn’t have been granted to them in the first place.
Yesterday, Samsung made legal moves to ask that one of Apple’s patents focusing on a pinch-to-zoom [...]
