SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The Silicon Valley court battle between Apple and Samsung is entering its final phase.
Lawyers for both companies are expected to deliver closing arguments Tuesday before jurors are sent behind closed doors to determine a verdict in a closely watched trial over smartphone technology.
Each company accuses the other of stealing key features to develop some of the latest smartphones on the market, but Samsung's newest device, the Galaxy S5 released earlier this month, is not at issue.
The four men and four women on the jury are to determine which company is right and how much in damages is owed. Apple is demanding $2.2 billion. Samsung seeks a fraction of that figure, some $6 million. Samsung also argues that if it is found to have infringed Apple's patent, it owes only $38.4 million.
