Apple is not fully satisfied with its history-making, record-breaking lawsuit victory against Samsung. Now it is asking the court to slide in six more Samsung devices that Apple claims infringed on the same patents as the devices that it previously claimed.

Among the new devices are the Galaxy S III, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi tablet, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet, the Galaxy S III mini, the Rugby Pro, and the Galaxy Note II.

"Apple has acted quickly and diligently to determine that these newly released products do infringe many of the same claims already asserted by Apple, and in the same way that the already-accused devices infringe," Apple wrote in its court filing.

Apple is kind of acting like the side who got what they asked for in a negotiation and then decides to tilt things even more in their favor. It's like when you buy a used car and say, "I'll give you $5,000" and the other party accepts, and then instead of being happy you say, "Well, then how about $4,500?"

Apple was already granted a victory against numerous Samsung devices so this new motion is just trying to pile on.

In the victory, Samsung was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages. Apple sought to place immediate bans on sales of the affected Samsung products, but there is still much more post-verdict work that needs to be done.

Among the new accusations is that the jury foreman worked for a company that had a hostile relationship with Samsung. Samsung is trying to claim that this connection was undisclosed and could have tainted the foreman's judgment. If this is found to be a material omission during the jury selection process, there would be no choice but to have a retrial.
