Supreme Court steps into Apple v. Samsung fray

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 22, 2016

Apple's years-long fight with Samsung Electronics over design patents will make its way to the US Supreme Court.

The nation's highest court on Monday agreed to review the case, the first time it has looked at a design patent case since the 1800s.

Samsung filed a request with the Supreme Court in December to re-examine the case after losing in court to Apple, which resulted in Samsung's requirement to pay Apple $548 million.

Apple shot back in February, calling the case "legally unexceptional" and asking the Supreme Court not to "prolong" the battle against Samsung. Apple also argued that the case didn't present a question important enough to require resolution at the top of the US judicial system.

"We welcome the court's decision to hear our case," Samsung said in a statement Monday. "The court's review of this case can lead to a fair interpretation of patent law that will support creativity and reward innovation."
