Samsung attorney indicates that the Korean company will fight against the jury’s verdict in favor of Apple

Apple’s fierce rival, Samsung, might lose the patent battle, but doesn’t lose hope, as the Korean company is rumored to appeal against the court order of awarding the tech giant with $120M in damages.

Last week, Apple clinched the victory over Samsung in a court battle, consequently winning five patents. However, the tech giant received only $120M in damages, whereas the desired amount was $2 billion. As a result, despite losing to the Cupertino company, Samsung looks to be very pleased.   

According to Bloomberg, John Quinn, the attorney of Samsung, stated, “Of course we’re pleased that the jury awarded Apple 6 percent of what they were asking for.” He added, “But even that can’t stand, because Apple kept out all the real world evidence and didn’t produce anything to substitute for it, so you have a verdict that’s unsupported by evidence—and that’s just one of its problems.”

Samsung decision to appeal against the Judge’s decision is indeed a smart move. But it might not reduce the amount of financial charges significantly.  According to Apple Insider, Michael Risch, the professor of the department of law of the Villanova University, said, “At this stage an appeal is cheap, even if the total can be reduced by $10-$20 million.”

Apple has won most of the patent cases, consequently grabbed $900 million from Samsung in damage, which clearly shows that the Cupertino company has always a better strategy.
