Despite the substantial damages awarded to Apple, the jury found that Samsung was owed no monetary compensation for its own utility patent claims. The jury was tasked with reviewing each patent, assigning a cumulative dollar amount to over 700 patent-specific questions. The jury returned a verdict after just two days of deliberation.

Check out the entire 20-page verdict here. A hearing is scheduled to be held on September 20th wherein Apple will file for permanent injunctions on the Samsung products found in violation of its patents, potentially banning their import to the United States.

Update: After delivering its initial verdict awarding Apple $1,051,855,000, the jury was asked to address discrepancies regarding two items on the verdict form. The verdict has been updated to reflect the new total damages owed to Apple, which is $1,049,343,540.
