A court’s decision not to prevent multiple Samsung handsets from being sold in the U.S. despite their being found to infringe Apple patents will go before an appeal’s court in early August reports the IDG News Service (http://tinyurl.com/m23h6ak).

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., will hear 15 minutes of oral arguments in the case from Samsung and Apple attorneys on Aug. 9, the article adds. The hearing comes almost a year after a jury at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in San Jose rejected arguments from Samsung and found that the company willfully set out to copy elements of the iPhone when designing hardware and software for 26 of its phones and tablets.
