Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan and its client Samsung have to pay more than $2m in legal fee costs to Apple and Nokia, a US court has ruled. Quinn Emanuel and Samsung are to pay Nokia about $1.5m and about $894,000 to Apple for breaking a court order protecting a confidential patent licensing agreement. Last year, Apple and Nokia had an agreement that was leaked by lawyers at Quinn Emanuel, who was granted access. The documents were marked as confidential. In court, Quinn Emanuel objected Apple's motion for sanctions, requesting a decrease in the fees requested by the plaintiffs. Source: Legal Week
