Looks like Samsung convinced a US District judge to grant a retrial in the Apple design patent damages case. So instead of having to pay Apple $400M in damages Samsung might be able to manage a settlement much less that that this time around. I'm sure all of their shareholders are thrilled with this news.

If one thought it appropriate to label a company's in-house and outside counsel, collectively, a "Comeback Kid," the term would surely apply to Samsung's IP litigation group and Quinn Emanuel. Yesterday (Sunday), Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California determined that a new Apple v. Samsung trial on design patent damages, which Samsung had been fighting for in courts on both coasts of the United States since the 2012 verdict, is indeed going to happen.
