USPTO reinstates three Apple patent claims -- but not one key to $1.05B Samsung suit

Loek Essers | April 3, 2013
The USPTO has reinstated three claims in an Apple patent it had earlier said it was minded to reject -- but not the claim involved in Apple's US$1.05 billion dollar lawsuit against Samsung, according to documents filed by Samsung with a Californian court on Monday.

Apple has used the patent in various lawsuits against Samsung and other Android device manufacturers. Last year, the patent was one of seven used to convince a jury that Samsung devices infringed Apple patents. In that case, the jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages. On March 1, a judge ordered a partial retrial of that case, cutting hundreds of millions of dollars from the damages awarded to Apple.
