Apple seeks $2.52 billion in damages from patent war with Samsung

TechRadar - Apple and Samsung continue to lock horns over patents with no end in sight, but Cupertino has now put a price tag on how much damage the Korean manufacturer has cost in their eyes.

As noted in a partially redacted court filing Tuesday discovered by Reuters, Apple claims "substantial monetary damages" are owed by Samsung, who the iPhone makers accuses of copying its own products.

The amount in question is $2.525 billion, but Apple isn't stopping there, also requesting a permanent injunction to force Samsung from violating the company's patents and designs.
