(CNN) - After just three days of deliberations, a federal jury in California has handed Apple a big win in its patent infringement case against Samsung.  The jury recommended Apple be awarded more than one-billion dollars in damages.

It said Samsung "willfully" violated several of Apple's patents when creating its own mobile products.  

The Wall Street Journal estimates the decision is one of the largest intellectual-property awards on record.  

But Apple had asked for two-and-a-half billion dollars in damages, saying Samsung "ripped off" its iPad and iPhone designs.  

Samsung turned around and filed a 519-million dollar countersuit against Apple -- saying the company had infringed on five of its patents.  

But the jury did not recommend awarding any damages to Samsung.
