SAN JOSE, CA—The blockbuster Apple-Samsung verdict ended last summer with a $1.05 billion jury verdict against Samsung.

The panel found that the Korean electronics company infringed Apple patents and copyrights. However, after hearing post-trial arguments, US District Judge Lucy Koh threw out a big part of Apple’s win, slashing the damages figure by $450 million. Today, a retrial will begin in San Jose, focused solely on the issue of how much money Apple should get from Samsung. More than 90 prospective jurors were just seated in the federal courtroom and sworn in. Koh just explained that the jurors are banned from reading about the case or communicating about the case until they are excused or until the trial ends.
