After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a U.S. federal court jury on Friday said it has found that Samsung infringed six of Apple’s patents and ordered it to pay more than 1 billion U.S. dollars in damages to Apple. The verdict was read in a U.S. district court in San Jose, in northern California after three days of deliberation.

The nine-member jury found that Samsung products violated Apple ’s patents related to screen bounceback and zooming, saying that the Korean company also infringed on the design and graphical interface of Apple’s iPhone. But the jury found that Samsung did not infringe Apple’s design patent on the iPad tablet computer.

The jury also ruled that Apple didn’t infringe on any Samsung patents. The trial started on July 30 after Apple claimed that Samsung copied its iPhone and iPad, seeking more than 2.5 billion dollars in damages. Samsung denied the charge, and made counterclaims that Apple violated its own patents.
