Samsung has been denied a request to keep the sales data of some of its products sealed while it appeals an earlier order in its legal battle with Apple, reports Bloomberg.

U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh previously ruled that Samsung must file an exhibit listing the total units sold of certain products during certain time periods. Samsung wanted to delay the order until its appeal was heard by the Federal Circuit court.

“Samsung’s appeal involves pricing information and profit margins,” Koh wrote. The exhibit at issue “only lists the number of units sold in each of several recent months.”

Koh did grant Samsung's request to delay publication of a document showing per-unit operating profit for two devices, pending appeal. Koh also denied other requests by both Apple and Samsung to seal documents where there was no 'compelling reason' to require their sealing.
