Jurors credit accountant witness for Apple victory in damages retrial

updated 11:01 am EST, Fri November 22, 2013

Sum below Apple's original demand

Two of the jurors in the Apple v. Samsung damages retrial are crediting an accountant witness, Julie Davis, for the $290 million verdict in Apple's favor. Jury forewoman Colleen Allen tells Bloomberg that Davis was a "superstar" who stayed steady even when she was being cross-examined. Allen's opinion is backed by juror Barry Goldman-Hall, who says it was Davis' testimony that helped the jury come to a precise figure. There were eight people on the jury in all, consisting of two men and six women.

Although Apple didn't get the $380 million it was originally demanding, the rendered amount was substantially higher than the $52 million asked for by Samsung. Unless Samsung wins an appeal, it will end up paying over $900 million to Apple as fallout from the latter's 2012 court victory.

Still more legal battles are ahead. In March the two companies will go to court over alleged patent infringements in more recent smartphones, including the Galaxy S III and iPhone 5. The products at the center of this week's verdict, all from Samsung, are largely obsolete and off store shelves.
