WSJ: Samsung to fight ban
After a guilty verdict was handed down in its trial with Apple, Samsung now faces a possible injunction that could ban eight of its smartphones from being sold in the US. According to a Wall Street Journal report, the company responded to Apple's injunction request with a simple statement that said, "We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market."
Samsung will try to overturn the original guilty verdict by filing post-trial motions with Judge Lucy Koh. If this legal maneuver fails, then Samsung will file an appeal which could make its way to the Supreme Court. As a last resort, the company said it will change its products and already has workarounds for two of the software-related patents.
In this post-verdict phase of the trial, Samsung has until September 12 to file a response to Apple's injunction request. Both sides will meet again in court on September 20 for a formal injunction hearing.
