U.S. Supreme Court will hear Apple and Samsung's patent case
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in the ongoing patent fight between Apple and Samsung. Samsung originally filed a motion with with the court late last year, stating its belief that the jury in the case didn't have sufficient information to understand the issues at hand. The company is also looking to change how design patent damages are calculated.
While the court agreed to hear the case, a date for arguments will be set at some later date.
