Samsung's Case Rests In Massive Patent Trial

Jury deliberations to begin soon

Samsung has rested its case in the historical patent infringement case against Apple today, and it left with a plea for $421.8 million in royalties.

It was really Apple who threw the first punch, accusing Samsung of violating its patents and blatantly ripping off the iPhone and iPad, but Samsung didn't take those allegations sitting down and decided to strike back at Apple.

This massive lawsuit was first brought about in April of 2011, when Apple sued Samsung. But Samsung initiated a huge countersuit, and the entire case has been rooted in very technical patent litigation.

It it almost unheard of to have a case like this go all the way to court. Usually it is settled before jury selection is even a thought process for anyone.

Usually, the accused party just ends up paying a licensing fee or some sort of other settlement is agreed upon.

But this is a battle against two extremely strong-willed companies, both of which continue to grow their egos as time goes on.

The actual trial just began on July 30. To prevent this from being an epic case that never ends, US District Judge Lucy Koh limited each side of the case to just 25 hours of testimony.

Deliberations should begin in the next five days. The jury will decide one of the most important jury-decided consumer electronics cases in history.
