After a three-day period of deliberations, the jury in the landmark patent suit found that Samsung had infringed on Apple's patents in a number of cases, awarding Apple $1 billion in damages. Samsung has vowed to appeal, if Judge Lucy Koh doesn't throw out the verdict, according to CNN.

Legal experts at the well-known Groklaw blog have pointed out several inconsistencies in the jury's verdict that could put Apple's big win in doubt - including the fact that some of the evidence was apparently ignored by the panel, and subsequent interviews with jurors that suggest the judge's instructions on damages were not followed.

According to the Guardian, Judge Koh will make a final decision on the case within a few weeks.
