Samsung today asked the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a central part of a recent ruling that ensured Apple would receive $548 million in damages, according to the San Jose Mercury News. The Korean company wants the court to hear the case with its full 12-judge roster rather than the 3-judge panel it used in the previous ruling.

"Unlike rugs, spoons, and simple mechanical objects, smartphones incorporate hundreds or thousands of different patented technologies, and it is undisputed here that Apple's design patents claim only partial, minor features of such devices," Samsung's lawyers argued in court papers.

In 2012, a jury ruled that Samsung willfully infringed Apple patents and awarded the Cupertino company $1 billion in damages. However, the award was slightly reduced to around $900 million a short time later after it was determined the original jury erred in its decision. Earlier this year, a U.S. appeals court reversed a significant part of the judgment, bringing the award down to $548 million. Samsung's latest move would target a part of the verdict that accounts for $400 million of the $548 million in damages Samsung owes.

The move is the latest in the ongoing legal battles between Samsung and Apple. In June 2014, it was reported that the two companies were attempting to find "common ground" in their legal battles and that they were both attempting to become "more practical" about finding a solution.

I was in Costco yesterday, thinking about buying a new tv. Looking at a giant Samsung. I thought, "Nope. Not going to reward their BS and lack of integrity." Got a Sharp. I think they stole from them too.

…and then after that you decided not to buy any more Apple products with Samsung components inside. I can get you a list if you want to make sure you’re maintaining the courage of your convictions?

Incredible hypocrisy, (assuming you knew - and if you didn’t you know now).
Well aren't you an angry one. There are positives and negatives to buying every product. I do happen to consider the fact that Apple uses Samsung components to be a negative, but most players in the industry do, so there's no getting around that fact. I don't consider that one negative aspect to be strong enough to warrant not buying Apple products, as they have far more positives in my view. I will not buy a product that is 100% Samsung, but given enough positives, I will buy one that uses their components. There is no hypocrisy here, you just didn't understand my viewpoint. I await your angry response! :)

That wasn't a sharp choice

It's been so peaceful without these Samsung vs Apple articles. How about another useless Apple watch article.

Biggest load of bollocks I’ve ever heard. If that’s how you feel don’t buy iPhones or Macbooks. Pretty sure a lot of them have/had Samsung screens. In fact take back the ones you’ve already purchased just to be safe.

Eventually they'll appeal the damages down to $3.50.
