The Verge’s Bryan Bishop:

Judge Lucy Koh has just delivered a serious blow to Cupertino in the Apple v. Samsung legal saga, cutting the damages awarded to the company down to $598,908,892 — and ordering a new trial to determine the remaining balance.

While the amount Samsung owes Apple has been reduced, it’s important to note that Koh didn’t declare that the jury was incorrect in assessing whether Samsung had infringed upon Apple’s intellectual property; those decisions themselves still stand.

The latter will go unnoticed by the “Apple dealt another setback” crowd. As if it was about the money for Apple.
