Apple v. Samsung Saga

The long-running patent battle between Apple and Samsung took a comedic turn when the CAFC (2015-1171) threw out a $120 million judgment against Samsung for infringing Apple touch-screen patents that were obvious (8,046,721 & 8,074,172). Through bogus claim construction, the district court was also reversed in finding Samsung infringing Apple's 5,946,647 patent, which claimed an "analyzer server" that Samsung did not employ in its similar technology. The upshot: pathetic jurist work by Northern California Judge Lucy H. Koh.
