Jury says Samsung infringed Apple patents

Posted: Updated:
SAN JOSE, California (AP) -- A California jury has determined that Samsung infringed Apple smartphone patents and awarded $120 million in damages.

The panel delivered its verdict in federal court in San Jose on Friday in the latest lawsuit involving the two tech giants. Apple Inc. had sought $2.2 billion after accusing Samsung Electronics Co. of infringing five of its patents covering functions such as slide-to-lock, universal and quick linking.

Samsung had sought $6 million after arguing Apple that had infringed two of its smartphone patents related to camera use and video transmission. 

The verdict marked the latest intellectual property battle between the world's top two smartphone makers. Apple and Samsung have sued each other in courts and trade offices around the world. 

Two years ago, a separate jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $930 million after finding it had used Apple technology to create older generation devices. Samsung is appealing that order.
