The jury is done deliberating. The results are in. And Samsung is guilty. Again.

Weeks of legal sparring between Apple and Samsung has finally culminated this week in San Jose, as a federal jury just ruled that Samsung did indeed infringe on at least one of Apple’s patents while it only partially infringed on others.

After three full days of deliberation the jury found that all of Samsung’s accused phones infringed on at least one patent, while some devices did not infringe on other patents in question like universal search.

The verdict comes after the jury heard more than 50 hours of testimony from both sides as Apple sought a total of $2.2 billion in damages. Samsung argued that it only owed Apple $38 million at most, but was also seeking $6 million from Apple on patent infringement claims of its own.

In the end the jury awarded Apple an underwhelming $119.6 million after the company was awarded around $1 billion from Samsung in 2012.
