Apple and Samsung are taking up arms again Thursday, continuing discussion of their $1 billion case. The two companies head back to the courtroom of Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, Calif. to talk about damages and further details in their patent battle.
A jury decided in August that Samsung should pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages, but Koh could enhance or soften those damages. She could also add supplementary damages. Finally, based on an argument from Samsung, she will also hear arguments on whether or not to award a new trial based on claims of jury misconduct.
In the run-up to the hearing, Samsung released documents about Apple’s settlement with another Android phone maker, HTC. According to the filing, posted by All Things Digital, the companies appear to be cross-licensing some patents. The agreement does not include any products defined as a copy of an Apple product — Apple can request an arbitration process if it feels HTC has released such a product.
