Judge orders new Samsung, Apple court faceoff

Samsung and Apple were ordered Friday to stand off in court once again after a federal judge struck down more than $450 million that a jury last August ordered Samsung to pay Apple.

"Some of the awards rested on impermissible legal theories," U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh wrote in explaining her ruling.

The jury had awarded Apple more than $1 billion in damages total after finding Samsung had copied both the design and software features of the iPhone.

Just under $600 million of that award to Apple still stands, according to Koh.

    It's a communist system. Samsung owns 6 cows, and Apple owns only 4. If you are on the jury, and you can't see the difference between night and day between them, you should of been bounced on your sequestering, and you shouldn't be serving on any jury anywhere. Now Samsung will own 5 cows.

      Yes, because Obama is naturally behind this, also. The man seems preternaturally superhuman to be the cause of the entire free world's problems.
