sin city. tonight at 11:00, we go undercover to check out some of these operations. >> thank you. two of the biggest technology companies in the world have been locked in a heated court battle. apple accusing samsung of stealing its ideas. and today, a jury agreed as our mark sayre reports, samsung now owes apple $900 million but jurors from the trial say it's more than just the money. >> reporter: since the legal process does not move as fast as the pace of technology, this case surrounds some older products including the samsung galaxy s2. a previous jury found samsung did violate apple's patents but this jury was tasked with deciding a big portion of the damages. some jurors say they feel apple simply made a better case that it was harmed and samsung didn't put on enough evidence nor witnesses. >> we had way more information from apple. and i think we were left wondering why we hadn't gotten other information from samsung. we didn't have much to counter it with.
6:02 pm

6:03 pm
showing samsung that copying has a cost. so today's jury here in san jose actually awarded $290 million of that $900 million total payment that samsung now owes to apple for its part though samsung issuing a statement this afternoon saying it is very disappointed in today's verdict and it does plan to appeal. reporting live from federal district in san jose, i'm mark sayre, kpix 5. >> both sides will be back in court again next year for another patent infringement trial. bart and its unions are facing a new fight after the bart board approved most but not all of the new contract with the unions. the sticking point, a family leave provision. the unions have already ratified the full contract but today, the bart board of supervisors voted to accept the contract without that provision. it's part of a deal that includes six weeks of paid leave for union workers to take care of a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child. bart management says it's a
6:04 pm
mistake in the agreement and the unions are furious. >> this is a fair and equitable contract for our employees in my opinion and it's a fordable and establishable for our writers. >> we're stunned. we think the board has taken an action that is not legally defensible. >> reporter: the unions can go back to their members to ratify the contract without the family leave provision renegotiate a new contract, take legal action against bart or strike. the unions are meeting with a legal team to decide what to do. >> first the rain now strong gusting winds are set to sweep across the bay area. brian hackney is in for paul tonight on our high wind advisory. we have gusts already up to about 35 miles an hour in some of the windiest spots in the bay area. it's all happening because of that storm that's headed south. building high pressure in its wake combined with that low means we have gusts up to 45 miles an hour out of the north- northeast and with the recent rains, the ground softening up
quote
6:05 pm
a little bit, not like we got a huge gully-washer but nevertheless there's the threat of downed power lines and also downed tree limbs. and as you can see right now if you look at the hot colors, that's where the strongest winds are, they are expected to be at the higher elevations. so now we have calm winds in san jose. it's up to 15 miles an hour at sfo. but in the north bay, north bay hills and then extending to the east bay hills later, there's winds gusting up to 30 miles an hour at santa rosa and in the futurecast this is a model of how the winds should kick up tonight. strongest will be in the north bay up to 30 to 40 miles an hour. you can feel that. so it will be windy enough to fly an iron kite tonight in the bay area. that could lead to some problems. we'll monitor it and have the whole forecast in 10 minutes. >> thank you. californians who lost their health coverage because of obamacare are out of luck. today "covered california" rejected a plea from president obama to extend those policies as his team works out the bugs in the affordable care act. steve large is in sacramento. now, steve, california is not
6:06 pm
going to help the white house. and this could affect hundreds of thousands of people. >> reporter: well, "covered california" essentially voted to stay the course. they are not going to allow those who are facing their policies to be terminated january 1 any type of extension. there was a chance of a one- year extension. the vote was unanimously by the "covered california" board 5-0. and, of course, this comes as president obama has been facing backlash after telling americans they could keep their healthcare insurance if they wanted. it turns out that's not true. one of the critics of this vote today happened to be the state insurance commissioner dave jones who says that this is a disservice to policyholders. now, bottom line here, after this vote today, i can tell you that there are 900,000 californians who have received cancellation notices. some of those people will be able to get some type of subsidy to get them into a
6:07 pm
"covered california" policy. but the vast majority of them, 600,000 also not. now, we're going to hear in a moment from the executive director of "covered california." but first, here is that state insurance commissioner dave jones. >> jones: "covered california" should have released health insurers from the contract provision and allowed them to renew their existing policyholders so health insurers can comply with the president's promise and so policyholders can derive the benefits from the promise. preventing consumers from renewing their contracts is a disservice. >> 1% of californians will be faced with financial challenges. it means a lot if you are that 1%. the issue of relooking at subsidies is a important issue for congress to look at. far too much attention is trying to destroy and undercut the affordable care act. >> reporter: "covered california" again voting 5-0 not to give any extensions to those policyholders whose
6:08 pm
policies were canceled as of january 1. 600,000 will not be eligible for subsidies. they will have to get new policies and possibly paying more money. live in sacramento, steve large, kpix 5. >> "covered california" says so far, more than 360,000 people have signed up for accounts on its website. eight armed robberies in just a few hours and tonight vallejo police are searching for a pair of gunmen involved in a crime spree that targeted victims one right after the other. kpix 5's john ramos on the mini crime wave. >> reporter: the crime spree began here about 5:30 p.m. when a resident on the 100 block of olympic drive was robbed at gunpoint by two men. one wearing a mask and the other a bandana across his face. the next robbery happened a short time later in the busy parking lot of seafood city on sonoma boulevard. >> which makes this even that much more brazen because the
6:09 pm
areas of these robberies very heavily populated areas. >> reporter: police say they got wallets and purses and then the thieves moved to the 400 block of louisiana street robbing someone in front of a house. the next stickup happened at the 7-eleven on tennessee street but this is the one police aren't sure about because the cashier was robbed by a single gunman after a group of young men had been ejected for causing a disturbance. but police say that because the 7-eleven robbery was so close and so soon after the incident on louisiana, they will be reviewing any surveillance video to see if there is a connection. next, people were robbed at houses on pueblo way and another road. both victims had just returned home from shopping so police are considering they may have been followed home. finally, around 9 p.m., a holdup of a delivery truck driver in the costco parking lot on plaza drive. and another victim robbed near pep boys right next door. that's 8 robberies in less than 4 hours. if the thieves were trying to get the attention of police,
6:10 pm
they succeeded. >> that tells me that these individuals really showed no regard whatsoever for either of them being caught and/or them hurting someone in the commission of this crime. we're going to really work towards identifying the responsible individuals in these cases and we are going to spend as much time as we need to, to make that happen. >> reporter: in vallejo, john ramos, kpix 5. >> and you're being asked to contact police if you have any information about these suspects. remember the guy arrested in san francisco back in october for allegedly masterminding that illegal drug empire called silk road? at a bail hearing today, a prosecutor accused him of running the site and paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to try to kill six people. ross william ulbricht now being held without bail in new york as he awaits trial. he could face life in prison. coming up, keeping renters

6:14 pm
but city leaders say, that's got to end. kpix 5 reporter linda yee says they are moving to change the law. >> reporter: ken, one idea is to ban or at least impose a moratorium on "ellis act" here in san francisco but that will be a tough political sell in sacramento. so mayor lee is leading a coalition coming up with amendments to the "ellis act" making it tougher and more expensive for landlords to evict tenants. >> reporter: this elderly couple is one of eleven families being evicted from their north beach apartment building, victims of an epidemic of "ellis act" evictions. city records show 162 evictions in the 12 months before september. randy shaw of the tenderloin housing clinic blames it on a hot real estate market and speculators. >> they buy a building and then the next day they go out of the landlord business which they have never been in and it's a way to preempt eviction laws for speculators.
6:15 pm
>> reporter: the "ellis act" allows apartment owners who want to get out of the rental business to evict tenants but state and local lawmakers are working to change that by imposing restrictions on how the "ellis act" is used. >> we need to shut down the incentives that they have used tow evict tenants. we have to make sure we make it harder for these repeat real estate speculators trying to flip properties. >> reporter: some suggestions include more permits or hearings before the resale of a property. or require landlords own a building for at least five years before they can use the "ellis act" to evict tenants. >> if someone has to own the building for five years before they can ellis, that puts a speculator out of business. >> reporter: urban green investments bought the building that 92-year-old man and his 88- year-old wife have lived in for 30 years. they have to move out by february. the real estate company's own website cites recent building purchases and its commitment to

preserving the city's architectual and culture identity. calls to the owners to get their take on the efforts to restrict the "ellis act" were not returned and no one at their offices in the city's marina district would comment. >> i don't think there's anybody here that's going to want to make a comment. >> reporter: the california apartment owners association told me late this afternoon they will oppose any efforts to change the "ellis act." in the meantime, the coalition is hoping to come up with proposed amendments for the state legislature before sessions begin in january. reporting live in san francisco, linda yee, kpix 5. >> a family evicted as part of the "ellis act" has found a place to live. we told you about the li family in september. they lived in an apartment on jackson for more than 34 years before getting forced out. the family has found a new place to live and started moving into that apartment yesterday. some bay area trains will soon be a lot greener as they

6:20 pm
temperatures mostly mid-50s clear skies. tomorrow numbers warmer than today. we'll top out in the mid-60s. the low pressure liz mentioned is now over the southland and high pressure is building in strongly. the battle between the two means that we get strong northeasterlies and those strong winds will be with us through tomorrow mid day and then the high pressure establishing itself over the state. it will dominate until who knows when, maybe until wednesday the next chance we have of rain. so it will be dry between now and midweek next week. but after that, looks like the storm door might open up a little bit. meantime sunshine after the winds tonight. overnight lows we are going to be looking at readings in the upper 30s at redwood city about 44 at pacifica and in san francisco tonight we'll get down to 46. for tomorrow nice, mid-60s. 64 in the city. and 64 in san jose. extended forecast, going to be a nice weekend. a lot of sun, breezy conditions, and temperatures in the mid-60s. and then a cloud no bigger than a man's hand blows up on wednesday and by thursday, that could lead to maybe a drop or two. so we shall see. >> we'll take it.

aware of when you're full. so she says, turn off the tube. >> another great tip is to keep your -- where you eat, the room where you eat, stress-free. you don't want to be thinking about the bills or work or clutter. >> reporter: one thing you should always leave in plain view your workout gear. >> i think it will not only impact me but my family. >> reporter: making for a healthy house and happy waistlines. melanie woodrow, kpix 5. >> nutritionists also say swap out clear containers for opaque ones. if you can't see the food, you're less likely to eat it when you're not hungry. >> i got one for you. go outside and walk up the hills of san francisco in the wind. >> don't be so obvious. you can exercise? what does that have to do with anything? that's a good tip. how windy is it? the answer is probably blowing in the wind especially at the de young museum tonight. that's where the kpix 5 mobile weather lab is. it's blowing around a little bit. the winds in downtown san
6:47 pm
francisco about 21 miles an hour. and i take it all back. there's not a pompom waving. [ laughter ] >> sometimes you -- you know, you have questions like is this -- do you guys do the news live? ladies and gentlemen, that's proof. north and east bay hills we have wind advisories tonight. it is blowing out there in santa rosa, gusts to 40 miles an hour. it's going to favor the north bay peaks and the gusts could be up to 45. power lines coming down, tree limbs coming down, maybe not the palm trees. south bay not as affected. the higher you go the more the wind blows and the winds out of the north-northwest at mountain view right now at 9 miles an hour. santa rosa 30 miles an hour sustained gusts to 40 miles an hour and you will notice higher elevations, now in the bay area, the numbers are mostly in the mid-50s and we are going to be looking for numbers to stay relatively mild tonight because of the winds that won't let things get that cold. by 8:00, we'll just be in the mid-50s with mostly clear skies
6:48 pm
and here's why it's happening. low pressure has exited central california. it's now heading to the southland where they have a few showers there in san diego county. high pressure building in close to that low pressure that's exiting means that it's going to be windy and then sunny. so to sum it up we're looking for things to stay windy in the north bay. hotter colors are mostly in the higher elevations and there's no elevations higher than the sierra where wind gusts will be 70 miles an hour where cambi brown is standing by. >> reporter: conditions at donner summit not terrible. in fact, take a look. we're looking at 19.6 degrees although with the wind chill, it is feeling colder than that. taking a look at wind speed we are looking at 1.8 miles per hour, 2.4. it's jumping quickly. in the last 20 minutes, 23.7 miles per hour is the peak. so really not terrible. we have just seen the gusts in the 20s for the past couple of hours or so although they are
6:49 pm
expecting the wind gusts to pick up later on into the evening. we spoke to one tow truck driver who is expecting to be very busy tonight. for kpix 5, i'm cambi brown. >> i know we're not exactly overwhelming you with these wind velocities but believe me the gusty winds tonight, and we have a sunny weekend ahead. it will be dry through midweek but don't be lulled into a false sense of security. it will be gusty especially in the north bay. rainfall, the other factor, so we get this rain that sweeps through, what did that do to the rainfall season? not much. i mean, but it's early in the season. santa rosa is only at 29%. elsewhere about half average. but you know as well as i do that if you have been around the bay area any amount of time that you can start slow and end with a lot of rain at the end and it's too early in the season to draw any conclusions. pinpoint forecast though, we do know this, going to be sunny over much of the northern half of the state. overnight lows tonight will be in the upper 30s and low 40s. and for the pinpoint forecast temperatures where we should be. this is the time of the year when livermore and san francisco have the same average
6:50 pm
daytime high of 62. and that's about where livermore will be tomorrow, 65 degrees. mid-60s does it for much of the bay area. 67 kentfield, 64 rohnert park in the far north though 67 will do it for st. helena. dry through midweek. the next chance of rain in the bay area, maybe by thursday. in the meantime, sunshine and i promise, wind! dennis has sports coming up. you ,,
