Apple is challenging a jury verdict that could force it to pay as much as $625.5 million to a company founded by David Gelernter, a Yale computer science professor, for infringing three patents related to how files are displayed on the iPod, the iPhone and Macintosh computers. A federal jury in Tyler, Texas, awarded the company, Mirror Worlds, $208.5 million in damages for each of the patents infringed.
