Apple v. Samsung: Judge Koh orders retrial on some damages.

So, Judge Lucy Koh has ordered a retrial for certain products the jury deemed infringed by Samsung.

Let’s be clear: She did not throw out the verdict on these products, she just disagreed with the amount of money the jury calculated.

Because the Court has identified an impermissible legal theory on which the jury based its award, and cannot reasonably calculate the amount of excess while effectuating the intent of the
jury, the Court hereby orders a new trial on damages for the following products: Galaxy Prevail, Gem, Indulge, Infuse 4G, Galaxy SII AT&T, Captivate, Continuum, Droid Charge, Epic 4G, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Tab, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, and Transform,…

Samsung still needs to cough up about 600 million USD, plus whatever a new jury decides for the products mentioned above – unless the parties settle…yeah, I know…
