Judge Cuts $450 Million Off the $1 Billion Samsung Owes AppleJudge Lucy Koh has given Samsung a huge discount on the damages it owes Apple. Originally billed to pay Apple over $1 billion, Judge Koh has cut $450,514,650 from Samsung’s tab. The new total that Samsung owes is $598,908,892. Still an unfathomable amount of money but an unfathomable amount of money less now.

This means that 14 Samsung products (Nexus S 4G, Galaxy SII and others) aren’t a part of Samsung’s current payment anymore. There’s going to be a new trial to figure out how much Samsung owes Apple for those products. Once you go to court, you never leave. [FOSS Patents]
