U.S. jury awards Apple $290.45 mln


A U.S. jury on Thursday awarded Apple Inc $290.45 million in a damages retrial against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, the latest battle in global patent litigation between the two mobile giants.

The verdict was announced in a San Jose, California, federal court. Apple had requested $379.8 million, while Samsung argued that it should have to pay $52.7 million.

Apple and Samsung have been fighting in the courts for over two years. Last year, Apple was awarded over $1 billion after it convinced a jury that Samsung copied various iPhone features - like using fingers to pinch and zoom on the screen - along with design touches like the phone's flat, black glass screen.

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 in its calculations.
