(Reuters) – A federal appeals court on Friday rejected Oracle Corps bid to restore a $1.3 billion jury verdict in its long-running copyright dispute with German software company SAP SE, and said Oracle may choose to either accept a lower amount or face a new trial. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said jurors used an undue amount of speculation in awarding $1.3 billion in damages in 2010. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton in Oakland, California, erred in concluding that the verdict was too high and that Oracle deserved only $272 million of damages, a sum Oracle rejected. Writing for a three-judge 9th Circuit panel, Judge William Fletcher directed Hamilton to offer Oracle a choice of $356.7 million of damages or a second trial.
