A German court on Friday dismissed two cases brought by Apple and Samsung against each other as part of an ongoing legal battle, reports “Reuters” (http://macte.ch/9HiXf).

The decision by a regional court in Mannheim covered a claim by Apple that Samsung infringed on its slide-to-lock technology as well as one of three patents Samsung claimed Apple violated. This is another round in the global, ongoing brouhaha between Apple and Samsung involving patent disputes.

The two companies have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. The German court is expected to make a decision on March 16 on another slide-to-unlock suit Apple has brought against Samsung.
