Supreme Court denies Samsung's appeal in Apple lawsuit

Supreme Court denies Samsung's appeal in Apple lawsuit”

Back in 2014, Apple was awarded United States dollars 119.6 million in damages by a jury, a decision against which Samsung had appealed. The South Korea tech giant appealed, and the case made its way up through the court system. On Monday, 6 November, the US Supreme Court denied hearing Samsung's recent appeal on the case.

Samsung's attempt to appeal a 2016 U.S. Court of Appeal verdict against it at the Supreme Court, has been turned down by the highest court in the land.

The ruling yesterday concerns some smartphone features Apple alleged were copied by Samsung.

Initially, the company had asked for a whopping $2.191 billion in damages for Samsung using the aforementioned patents and three negligible ones in 10 products. Adding up, Samsung also said, "The lower courts made it too easy for Apple to prove infringement of a patent covering quick- link technology for converting text- message data". The awards were overturned in February 2016 but 11 judges on the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. reinstated them in October 2016. This particular one covers the Cupertino-based brand's slide-to-unlock, autocorrect, and quick links patent.

Yemen's Houthi fire missile at Saudi Arabia's Riyadh
Al-Masira said the missile launched on Saturday evening was made in Yemen and was the third to be fired towards Riyadh this year. Al Arabiya TV reported the missile was sacked from Yemen and was brought down close to the capital by Saudi air defence forces.

The company also said that even though one of the patent's involved in the case has been invalidated by the courts, "today's decision allows Apple to unjustly profit from this patent, stunts innovation and places competition in the courtroom rather than the marketplace". But it lost so the rest of the world's reality perception will now have to match Apples'. That figure was later reduced to $548 million after an appeal, and last month the Supreme Court set aside $399 million more of the judgment after another appeal from Samsung.

The companies have battled in close to a dozen countries, with each accusing the other of infringing on various patents related to their flagship smartphone and tablet products.
