Apple has filed a request requesting Samsung reimburse US$15.7 million of its legal fees in their patent infringement fight. The request isn't common in cases like this, although Apple thinks it's justified based on Samsung's willful mobile device patent infringement patent infringement, reports "The MacObserver" (http://tinyurl.com/me86ys5).
Apple's filing says it's justified in asking for the payment because it won nearly all of its claims against Samsung, but wasn't found to infringe on any of Samsung's patents. Apple also says that Samsung's infringement was "willful, deliberate, and calculated," and that the company has benefitted commercially from its infringement.
