The South Korea tech giant appealed, and the case made its way up through the court system.
The US Supreme Court has refused to hear Samsung's appeal in the case, upholding a circuit court decision reinstating a $120 million penalty for allegedly infringing on Apple's patents for technology like slide-to-unlock and autocorrecting text.
Appealing to the Supreme Court, Samsung said that the patent court's judges did not follow proper procedure in reviving the verdict because they made the decision without considering additional legal papers or hearing oral arguments.

A three-judge panel of the Federal Circuit, a Washington-based court that specializes in patent matters, had originally overturned the verdict, but it was reinstated in an October 2016 ruling by a full slate of 11 judges on that court.
Today's decision by the Supreme Court put the "kibosh" on the company's petition. It is also worth noting that out of the three patents, the patent for "quick-links" feature, which turned phone numbers and addresses into clickable links, accounted for more than 80% of total damages, which is almost $100m. Samsung was still ordered to pay $119.6 million in damages to Apple for violating three patents, which is a far cry from the $2.2 billion Apple was seeking.
A week later, Apple asked a US court to force Samsung to cough up $180 million more.
