Apple's request for sales ban on Samsung devices denied by Judge Koh
Earlier this year, Apple asked for a sales ban on nine Samsung products, saying that it would suffer “irreparable harm” if sales of the products continued. Apparently a judge didn’t agree.
Judge Lucy Koh has denied Apple’s request for an injunction against nine Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III. Apple requested the permanent ban earlier this year, but Judge Koh said that Apple did not show that it suffered any significant harm as a result of lost sales or an injury to its reputation.
Apple ended up winning around $120 million in damages from its recent trial with Samsung, which is quite a bit lower than the $2.2 billion it originally sought. And while Samsung may have come out ahead in this portion of the war between the two firms, the battle shows no signs of letting up.
