Judge leaves US sales ban on Samsung tablet intact
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A federal judge has refused to rescind a court order banning Samsung Electronics from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 computer in the U.S.
The denial issued this week in San Jose federal court is part of a bitter battle pitting Samsung Electronics against Apple Inc. in a dispute over the mobile devices made by the two companies.
A jury last month awarded Apple $1.05 billion after concluding several Samsung smartphones infringed on Apple's iPhone patents.
But the jury rejected Apple's allegations that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 illegally copied the iPad.
That prompted Samsung to ask U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to dissolve the ban imposed on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in June. In a Monday ruling, Koh refused because a Samsung appeal of her original order is still pending.
