It's weird that they can sue Apple for damages that were a result of a prior court case. I mean, sure, Apple was responsible for pushing the initial ruling... but the ruling was determined official by the courts (until it was overturned).

Is this standard practice in the US, too?

You're allowed to sue for whatever you want. That doesn't mean you're going to win.
