A judge on Friday cut $450.5 million from the $1-billion judgment Apple won in a patent infringement case against Samsung last summer.
U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose said she trimmed the award because of what appears to be a technical error in the jury's methodology used to calculate the damages Samsung owed relating to 14 products.
Koh ordered a new jury trial to determine the damages related to those products, which could theoretically result in the $450.5 million portion of the verdict being increased or decreased.
"We are pleased that the court decided to strike $450,514,650 from the jury's award," Samsung said in a statement. "Samsung intends to seek further review as to the remaining award. We are also pleased that the court earlier found that Samsung had not acted willfully, denied Apple’s request for a permanent injunction, and denied Apple's motion for increased damages."
