Samsung says it owes Apple $52M, much less than $380M Apple is seeking in patent trial

ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE, Calif. — An attorney for Samsung says Apple deserves less than a quarter of the $380 million it’s asking jurors to award it in a patent dispute between the two companies.

Samsung attorney Bill Price said today during opening statements of a new trial between the two technology giants that Samsung owes Apple $52 million.

Price says the phones Samsung is accused of ripping off from Apple have many different features, including larger screens and removable batteries.

An Apple attorney, Harold McIhenny, argued earlier for the $380 million figure.

A previous jury concluded that 26 Samsung products copied Apple’s scrolling function, iPhone design and other features. But a judge ruled that jury miscalculated damages, and tossed out $400 million of the verdict.
