Apple has failed in its latest bid to relitigate one of its lawsuits with VirnetX, after the US Court of Appeals rejected calls from the iPhone maker to reconsider a split verdict issued in November that only partially helped the iPhone maker avoid making a $503 million payout.
The Federal Circuit's decision to side with VirnetX in January 2019 as part of a long-running patent infringement case is "grossly unfair," Apple insists to the Supreme Court, claiming the "whopping" $439 million judgment involved the Federal Circuit making "two fundamental legal errors" to justify the size.
A US appeals court has upheld two rulings that Apple infringed VirnetX patents, but reversed the decision on two others. The nearly decade-long legal case must now go back a Texas judge who will consider further hearings.
Part of a $600 million judgment against Apple over alleged patent infringement may not necessarily be heading to VirnetX, with a Federal Circuit panel suggesting it may not be able to uphold part of the award due to ongoing litigation that could invalidate patent claims at hand.
Apple is facing another class action lawsuit over its supposed decision to render FaceTime inoperable in iOS 6 as part of efforts to save money on a data services.

Apple has asked the Federal U.S. Court of Appeals to hold another hearing for its case against VirnetX, insisting last week's failed attempt to get an en banc hearing should have been allowed due to the same court invalidating some of VirnetX's patent claims just minutes beforehand.
