Samsung Appeals Galaxy Nexus U.S. Ban
After successfully obtaining an injunction in the U.S. against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Apple managed to achieve the same for the Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Samsung, as expected, appealed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 ruling and is now doing the same in case of the latest Google phone.
A motion to stay the injunction was filed for the entire duration of the appeal; it includes seven points, among which, Samsung’s assessment that “The Court’s finding that Apple will suffer irreparable harm was based on legally insufficient evidence that Samsung and Apple are competitors”, and “‘People’ and ‘browser’ are not infringing modules under the Court’s construction”. According to Florian Mueller, the judge — same Judge Lucy Koh — will probably not stay the injunction for the entire period of the appeal but rather likely until the Federal Circuit decides to stay it or not.
