U.S. Supreme Court will hear Samsung's appeal against Apple on Oct. 11

In March, the U.S. Supreme Court said that it would hear Samsung's appeal in the ongoing patent litigation with Apple. According to the court's schedule for October, Samsung's appeal would be heard on October 11.

Samsung came to a settlement with Apple last December, agreeing to pay $548 million in damages over infringement of two design patents. However, it reserved the rights to reclaim or receive a reimbursement of the damages should any part of the trial be modified. And just ten days after, Samsung filed a motion asking the Supreme Court to intervene and overturn the earlier verdict.

Last month, the Department of Justice filed an amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to turn the case over to the trial courts. We'll know more once the Supreme Court hears Samsung's appeal on October 11.
