Samsung Seeks to Keep Phones On Store Shelves
Samsung has asked a U.S. court to stand by its initial ruling that denied Apple its own pre-trial request to block sales of the Galaxy Nexus. The initial ruling was made in October, but Apple appealed. Apple wants to ban sales of the Galaxy Nexus in the U.S. ahead of a patent-related trial that is not expected to begin until March 2014. Apple asked all nine of the judges in the Federal Circuit to reexamine the decision. Samsung filed documents with the court last week suggesting that Apple doesn't have enough evidence for such a ban. Samsung's request comes after several government organizations have suggested they don't like the idea of banning products over patent infringement claims. In a separate lawsuit, Samsung was hit with a $1.05 billion infringement verdict, but in that case the judge denied Apple's request for a product ban. The amount of money Samsung has to pay Apple is not yet finalized. The two companies are at odds with one another in courtrooms around the globe over patents pertaining to smartphones.
