A jury last week found Apple guilty of infringing on three patents held by a small Texas company and ordered the company to pay as much as $600 million in damages, according to Bloomberg news service.
Bloomberg reported that Apple was ordered to pay Mirror Worlds $208 million in damages for infringing on each of the three patents. The patents relate to how documents are displayed on a computer screen and are related to Apple's Cover Flow technology, which it uses in the Mac OS, on iPods, and in the iOS operating system used on the iPhone and iPad.
Apple on Sunday filed an emergency motion to stay the ruling, according to court filings.
Mirror Worlds, a company founded by Yale University computer-science Professor David Gelernter, sued Apple in 2008.
An Apple representative was not immediately available for comment.
