Apple has filed a motion for a U.S. preliminary injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, reports “FOSS Patents” (

The motion is based on a ruling by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), which came down four days earlier and sided with Apple on the question of whether an iPad-related design patent (U.S. Patent No. D504,889) is likely valid, the article adds. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents.

Apple and Samsung CEOs are slated to meet on May 21 and 22 to try and settle the global, ongoing patent battle. The meetings will take place in a San Francisco courthouse, while the litigation itself is before the San Jose division of the court.
