Judge Koh lifts Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales injunction
Judge Lucy Koh lifted the injunction that banned the sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US, says a Reuters report. The court issued the injunction as part of a contentious legal battle between Apple and Samsung in the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.
In August, a jury found that Samsung's devices violated several Apple patents, but ruled that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 did not infringe Apple's D889 patent. This was a critical decision as the infringement of the D889 patent was the basis for the Tab 10.1 injunction.
Samsung argued that the ban should be lifted now that jury determined its device was not infringing, while Apple wanted to keep the ban in place during the post-trial phase. Judge Koh did not agree with Apple's request and opened the doors for Samsung to begin selling its Tab 10.1 tablet.
