UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION



APPLE, INC., a California corporation,
Plaintiff,
v.
SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD., A
Korean corporation; SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC., a New York
corporation; SAMSUNG TELECOMMUNICATIONS AMERICA, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company,
Defendants.




On August 24, 2012, after a thirteen day trial and approximately three full days of deliberation, a jury in this patent case reached a verdict. See ECF No. 1931. Samsung now seeks judgment as a matter of law to overturn certain of the jury’s findings. In the alternative, Samsung moves for a new trial. See Samsung’s Motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law, New Trial And/Or Remittitur Pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 50 and 59 (“Mot.”), ECF No. 2013. Apple filed an opposition (“Opp’n”), ECF No. 2050, and Samsung filed a Reply (“Reply”), ECF No. 2131. For the reasons discussed below, the Court GRANTS Samsung’s motion for judgment as a matter of law that claims 15 and 16 of Samsung’s U.S. Patent No. 7,447,516 (“the ’516 Patent”) are not exhausted. The Court also GRANTS judgment as a matter of law that Samsung’s acts of patent infringement were not willful. However, for the reasons discussed below, the Court DENIES Samsung’s motion for judgment as a matter of law in all other respects, and DENIES Samsung’s motion for a new trial.
