As reported by “FOSS Patents” (, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit today denied two Samsung motions relating to the preliminary injunction Apple won against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 four weeks ago. The court:

° Denied Samsung’s motion to stay the preliminary injunction for the duration of the appellate proceedings.

° Denied a Samsung motion to expedite the appeal.

In May Apple filed a motion for a U.S. preliminary injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. The motion is based on a ruling by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), which came down in May and sided with Apple on the question of whether an iPad-related design patent (U.S. Patent No. D504,889) is likely valid.
