As had been anticipated, Tuesday saw an Apple filing of a notice of cross-appeal pertaining to the final judgement in the first Apple vs. Samsung California patent trial.
In response to California District Court Judge Lucy Koh’s final judgment of 2012’s Apple v. Samsung trial, which was handed down last week, Apple is appealing all interlocutory orders and decisions having to do with the case.
Apple’s appeal is in response to the August 24, 2012 trial decision, Judge Koh’s order on the retrial for vacated damages, and her denial for a permanent injunction against 23 Samsung devices.
Judge Koh’s final judgement saw her awarding Apple $929 million in damages due to Samsung’s patent infringement, including $290 million in damages from a retrial over previously vacated damages. Apple had been awarded $1.05 billion by a jury, however Koh reduced the award due to juror error and the appeal.
Samsung had filed its own appeal of the ruling last week, and the legal battle is expected to be waged well into the future.
A second patent trial is set to begin in Judge Koh’s California courtroom on March 31st.
