Judge rejects Apple patent award demand

San Francisco - A federal judge has rejected Apple's demand to increase the $1.05bn in damages a jury ordered Samsung to pay its fiercest rival in the smartphone market.

US District Judge Lucy Koh late on Tuesday also rejected demands from both companies to conduct another trial. Koh ruled that the San Jose jury got it right in August when it found Samsung Electronics ripped off technology Apple used to make the iPads and iPhones so it could create nearly 26 million smartphones and computer tablets.

The jury also found several other Samsung products didn't infringe any of Apple's patents.

The jury found that South Korean-based Samsung infringed six patents and awarded Apple $1.05bn in damages.

The series of orders issued late on Tuesday didn't address Samsung's request to reduce the award.
