Not simply content with their $1.05 billion judgement against Samsung this past Summer, Apple continues to press on the legal gas as it recently filed a motion with the Court seeking an additional $707 million in damages from Samsung. Samsung, meanwhile, responded in kind by asking for an entirely new trial altogether.

In a motion filed late Friday U.S. time, Apple sought a further $400 million damage award for design infringement by Samsung; $135 million for willful infringement of its utility patents; $121 million in supplemental damages based on Samsung’s product sales not covered in the jury’s deliberation; and $50 million of prejudgment interest on damages through December 31. The requests together come to $707 million.

In addition, Apple is also seeking a permanent injunction that would cover any Samsung product containing a feature “not more than colorably different from any of the infringing feature or features in any of the Infringing Products.”

You might remember that back in August Apple filed a motion with the US District Court in Northern California seeking an injunction against 8 Samsung smartphones.

  • Galaxy S 4G
  • Galaxy S2 (AT&T)
  • Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)
  • Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
  • Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
  • Galaxy S Showcase
  • Droid Charge
  • Galaxy Prevail

As for Samsung, they want a new trial because they feel the time contraints implemented by Judge Lucy Koh were too limited for a trial of this complexity and magnitude, and consequently “prevented Samsung from presenting a full and fair case in response to Apple’s many claims.”

And so the battle rages on…
