Message Text: A federal judge has overturned a federal jury's order that Apple pay $625.5 million in damages for violating patents held by a Mirror Worlds LLC.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Leonard Davis in Tyler, Texas, which was disclosed in a Monday court filing, dismisses one of the largest-ever patent infringement verdicts.

In his ruling, the judge said that "Mirror Worlds may have painted an appealing picture for the jury, but failed to lay a solid foundation sufficient to support important elements it was required to establish under the law."

In October, a federal jury in Tyler determined that Apple infringed on three of Mirror Worlds' patents, which cover several features on Apple's Mac computers, iPhones and iPods. The jury awarded Mirror Worlds $208.5 million for each patent violation.

Apple had asked the U.S. District Court to wait to enforce the jury award, saying there were still issues that needed to be addressed.
