Samsung has formally filed a motion, asking the Supreme Court of the United States to overturn the verdict in the patent case between the company and Apple. In its motion to the court, Samsung states its belief that the jury in the case wasn't given enough information to understand the patent issues at hand. Additionally, Samsung is raising an issue as to how design patents are calculated.
"Samsung is escalating this case because it believes that the way the laws were interpreted is not in line with modern times," it said in a statement. "If the current legal precedent stands, it could diminish innovation, stifle competition, pave the way for design patent troll litigation and negatively impact the economy and consumers."
The original verdict in this case was handed down in August 2012, with the initial judgment being that Samsung owed Apple over $1 billion for various patent infringements. In the intervening years, that number has been continually contested until recently when Samsung paid Apple $548 million.
