Following weeks of testimony and three days of deliberations, the eight-member jury reached a decision awarding Apple $119,625,000 on three infringed patents and Samsung $158,400 on one patent.
On the two patents, Samsung was originally found to have infringed the two patents in question, though it had successfully appealed the decision before it was overturned.

Appealing to the Supreme Court, Samsung said that the patent court's judges did not follow proper procedure in reviving the verdict because they made the decision without considering additional legal papers or hearing oral arguments. Earlier, Nokia also filed a lawsuit against Apple for patent infringement. For its part, Apple asked for the original verdict to stand, stating that there is nothing important for the Supreme Court to review based on Samsung's filing. It is also worth noting that out of the three patents, the patent for "quick-links" feature, which turned phone numbers and addresses into clickable links, accounted for more than 80% of total damages, which is almost $100m.
With that, Samsung took the matter to the Supreme Court.
"One of the Apple's patents at issue, in this case, has been invalidated by courts around the world, and yet today's judgment allows Apple to unjustly profit from this patent, stunts innovation and places competition in the courtroom rather than the marketplace". That amount excluded another $382 million in damages for allegations that Samsung copied Apple's packaging materials.
Apple has not responded or commented so far.
