Apple Seeks New Trial in Samsung Patent Case

Apple Inc. asked to proceed with a new trial on 14 Samsung Electronics Co. products for which a U.S. judge overturned a jury patent-infringement award rather than letting Samsung appeal her decision upholding damages for 14 other products covered by the jury’s verdict. Apple, in a reply to Samsung’s request to seek an appeal and put the case on hold, said the Suwon, South Korea- based company’s proposal would “likely lead to a remand without a substantive decision” from an appeals court.
