SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Apple wants Samsung Electronics to pay $22 million of the legal bills that the iPhone and iPad maker has rung up so far defending its mobile device patents in a legal showdown with its rival.

The money sought in court documents filed Thursday would be in addition to the $930 million in damages that juries decided Samsung owes Apple Inc. after hearing evidence in two separate trials held in a San Jose, Calif., federal court.

Apple is asking U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to order Samsung to pay $15.7 million in attorney fees. That would cover less than one-third of the more than $60 million that Apple says it owes its lawyers in the case.

Apple also wants Samsung to reimburse its lawyers for $6.2 million in various expenses.
