Almost everyone knows the American patent system (and legal system) is broken, but what a mess in San Francisco--
Groklaw - Jury in Apple v. Samsung Goofed, Damages Reduced -- Uh Oh. What's Wrong With this Picture?: "In two instances, results were crazily contradictory, and the judge had to have the jury go back and fix the goofs. As a result the damages award was reduced to $1,049,343,540, 1 down from $1,051,855,000. For just one example, the jury had said one device didn't infringe, but then they awarded Apple $2 million for inducement. In another they awarded a couple of hundred thousand for a device they'd ruled didn't infringe at all. "
How to fix this? The immediate fix: throw out the verdict, grant new trial. Long term fix: comprehensive reform of the U.S. patent and legal system.
