Apple Corrects Judge’s Sums
It complains it’s been gypped of $85 million

After Judge Lucy Koh cut $450.5 million off the original stunning $1.05 billion in damages a jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple for infringing its patents, Apple checked the judge's arithmetic and wants to file a conditional motion to reconsider.
It complains it's been gypped of $85 million and that two Samsung phones were on the market during the time required for Samsung to disgorge its profits.
Apple says it's really entitled to damages of at least $685 million.
FOSS Patents says Apple is only bringing the issue up now to pre-empt the partial final judgment requested by Samsung.
Aside from the appeals that have been lodged by both Apple and Samsung, Koh has ordered a new trial to recalculate the damages and that means the total damages could ultimately go up or down.
