U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, granted Apple’s request for a pre-trial injunction against the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus phone, handing the iPhone maker its second legal victory against Samsung in a week, reports “Reuters” (http://macte.ch/PtMWT).
Her ruling comes just days after she also slapped a pre-trial ban on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. Koh scheduled a hearing on Monday to consider whether to put the Galaxy Nexus injunction on hold pending appeal and said in court that she might rule on Sunday whether or to similarly put on hold the earlier injunction on the Galaxy Tab, notes “Reuters.”
Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
