Apple has incurred legal costs of over US$60 million in its court battle against Samsung in California, and the bill is still rising.
The figure was revealed in filings made late Thursday by Apple’s lawyers with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California as part of Apple’s demand that Samsung should pay a portion of its legal expenses.
”Apple has paid or expects to pay Morrison & Foerster approximately $60 million for its work on this case through the damages retrial,” the filing said, referring to Apple’s main law firm. “Apple also has paid or expects to pay approximately $2 million to Wilmer Hale for its fees in the damages retrial,” it added, referring to a second company it has been using.
The figures only include those who had billed more than $100,000 in charges thus far in the case, so the actual bill is likely to be higher.
