Friday’s ruling on the Apple v. Samsung infringement case stated the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is free of any design infringement against the iPad (we were surprised by this decision too). Sure, Samsung has to pay out over $1 billion to Apple, but they won on the tablet side. The Tab 10.1 has been removed from retail outlets per an injunction since June 26.
When Apple requested, and was ultimately granted, an injunction against Samsung’s tablet, it did so with a $2.6 million bond. Samsung is asking the court to hang on that bond with the intent to ask for more damages at a future hearing.
Just because the initial jury trial has concluded does not mean this case has yet been settled. There are additional hearings set for September with Apple asking Judge Koh for additional compensation – nearly triple the jury-awarded amount – and to overturn portions the jury did not find in Apple’s favor. Likewise, Samsung will probably request the court to drop certain decisions to favor Samsung.
