Samsung urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington today to rule that a jury in 2014 shouldn’t have made the South Korean company pay nearly $120 million to Apple for infringing three patents, reports Reuters.
Apple's "quick links" patent, as the main focus in Samsung's latest effort to overturn major court victories by the Cupertino, California-based company over the past two years. Samsung's attorney Kathleen Sullivan said Samsung didn’t use the same technology as Apple to detect and link to specific data, such as phone numbers, in its phones' Web browser and messenger applications, notes Reuters. However, Apple's lawyer, William Lee, told the nation's top court specializing in patent issues, that the jury's verdict was supported by "substantial evidence.”
This is all part of the ongoing, global legal battle. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
