Apple hasn't commented on WARF's win. Unfortunately it seems that for Apple, $234 million wasn't quite enough because in a report from Reuters (via 9to5Mac), a USA judge has since ordered Apple to pay $506 million in damages instead, making it more than double what the jury had initially arrived upon.
Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) is the group that sued Apple in 2014, and although the most recently ordered fine is significant, the group had intended for an even more damaging figure of $862 million to be inflicted on Apple. Since that's exactly what Apple is doing, the Judge said he'll wait to rule on a second infringement case WARF filed targeting the A9 and A9X processors.
U.S. District Judge William Conley in Madison added $272 million to a $234 million jury verdict the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation won against Apple in October 2015.
Apple, during the trial before a jury, reportedly argued that the patent was not valid and called for a Trademark Office review of the patent's validity. It was attained by a University of Wisconsin professor and three students in 1998.
