SHARE Jury says Samsung, Apple both infringed patents

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A jury has determined that Samsung infringed Apple smartphone patents and awarded $120 million in damages to the California company.

In a counterclaim filed by Samsung, the panel also said Apple Inc. infringed Samsung Electronics Co. patents and awarded $158,000 in damages to South Korean company.

The jury delivered the decisions in federal court in San Jose on Friday in the latest lawsuits involving the two tech giants.

Apple Inc. had sought $2.2 billion after accusing Samsung Electronics Co. of infringing five of its patents covering functions such as slide-to-lock, universal searching and quick linking.

Samsung had sought $6 million after arguing Apple that had infringed two of its smartphone patents related to camera use and video transmission.

The verdict marked the latest intellectual property battle between the world’s top two smartphone makers. Apple and Samsung have sued each other in courts and trade offices around the world.
