Apple's win in this lawsuit makes it the second occurrence wherein Samsung has been forced to pay damages.

On Friday, a jury in San Jose, California announced a verdict in the Apple-Samsung patent lawsuit, which ended with Samsung owing Apple $119,625,000 in damages.

According to The Verge, Apple originally sought $2.191 billion in damages. The lawsuit was concerned with five patents that 10 Samsung devices infringed. In the end, only $119,625,000 will be awarded to Apple.

Apple wasn’t the only one doing the suing, however. Samsung’s suit involved Apple’s iPhones and iPads, and was for a paltry $6.2 million. The court did find Apple in violation of one of Samsung’s two patents, and is forcing the company to pay $158,400 to Samsung.

This is the second trial between Apple and Samsung, which ended in a similar result. Samsung was forced to pay nearly $1 billion in damages in 2012 after the company was found creating products that were too similar to Apple’s iPad and iPhone.
