Business Briefs: Apple, Samsung fight intensifies

Apple, Samsung fight intensifies

Apple wants Samsung Electronics to pay $22 million of the legal bills that the iPhone and iPad maker has rung up so far defending its mobile device patents in a legal showdown with its rival.

The money sought in court documents would be in addition to the $930 million in damages that juries decided Samsung owes Apple Inc. after hearing evidence in two separate trials held in a San Jose, Calif., federal court. Apple is asking U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to order Samsung to pay $15.7 million in attorney fees. That would cover less than one-third of the more than $60 million that Apple says it owes its lawyers in the case. Apple also wants Samsung to reimburse its lawyers for $6.2 million in various expenses.


Judge refuses to block merger

A judge refused to block a merger between American Airlines and US Airways on Friday, saying a bankruptcy judge correctly rejected arguments made by a lawyer for some consumers.

San Francisco attorney Joseph Alioto argued that the deal would harm fliers because it would result in less competition and higher prices. But U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska repeatedly noted that his arguments relied on outdated facts, had no evidence to support them and sometimes made no sense.
