Apple was handed two minor victories by the judge overseeing the forthcoming patent case between the iPhone maker and Samsung. Federal Judge Lucy Koh, who has handled the bulk of the litigation between the two companies in the U.S., ruled that some Samsung devices infringed on an Apple patent for word recommendations, or auto-correct. Further, Koh deemed another Samsung patent, pertaining to multimedia syncing across devices, invalid. Samsung expressed frustration with the decisions. The rulings put Apple in a better legal standing ahead of the trial, which is scheduled to start in March. The March trial is separate from the one that took place in August 2012, and covers Samsung's more recent devices, including the Galaxy S III.
