Apple Wins Big in Patent Case, Seeks Injunction on Samsung Phones

Apple won a $1.05 billion victory Friday in its suit against Samsung, and today requested a preliminary injunction on eight out of 28 Samsung products found to be infringing Apple patents, the New York Times reports. If the jury award isn't brought down by post-trial motions or appeals it will be the largest patent verdict in history. The nine jurors in the case, who faced the daunting task of answering more than 700 questions on sometimes highly technical matters, returned a verdict after just three days of deliberations at a federal courthouse in San Jose, Calif.
