A federal judge has denied Apple's request to increase the size of the $1.05-billion judgment a jury awarded the company last summer in its patent infringement case against Samsung.
Apple had requested that the size of the verdict be tripled because Samsung had "willfully" infringed Apple patents. U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose disagreed.
Koh also denied requests from both companies for a new trial based on portions of the original verdict they did not like.
Apple has already appealed Koh's denial of its request to ban 26 Samsung products that were covered in the original trial. Koh had said Apple failed to show that the patents infringed in the case covered features that were critical in consumers' decisions about which phone to buy.
