Despite the patent win from Samsung, US giant Apple is seeking additional damages and interest more than $700 million. A California jury on August 24 declared that the South Korean giant Samsung must pay Apple $1.049 billion in damages for illegally copying iPhone and iPad features for its flagship phone Samsung Galaxy S smartphones.

But in a court document filed on late September 21, 2012 Apple said that it is requesting an amendment to the existing verdict and a total judgement of more than $707 million noting that the amount it received did not adequately cover Samsung’s infringements on its patents.

Another documents has mentioned that the Samsung underscored the court’s constraints in trial time, witnesses and exhibits were unprecedented for a patent case of its complexity and magnitude. This prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims.

The document added, “Samsung therefore respectfully requests that the Court grant a new trial enabling adequate time and even-handed treatment of the parties”. Apple and Samsung have been locking horns over the patent issue in several patent lawsuits across the world. The companies have constantly been accusing each other of copying technologies and designs.
