Jury orders Samsung to pay over $1 billion to Apple

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Samsung is expected to appeal today's ruling from a jury in California that found the company had ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create iPhones and iPads.

The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion, at the end of a closely-watched patent infringement case.

Samsung had fired back with its own lawsuit against Apple, seeking about $400 million. But the jury rejected all of Samsung's claims. It also rejected some of Apple's claims, in declining to award Apple the $2.5 billion it had demanded.

But jurors found that several of Samsung's products illegally used such Apple creations as the "bounce-back" feature and the ability to zoom text with a finger tap.

From the start of the trial, legal experts and Wall Street analysts saw Samsung as the underdog. Apple's headquarters is just 10 miles from the courthouse in San Jose. And jurors were picked from the heart of Silicon Valley, where Apple's late founder Steve Jobs is revered as a technological pioneer.

Apple and Samsung are involved in similar lawsuits overseas.
