U.S. Appeals Court Rejects Apple's Request for Sales Ban on Samsung Galaxy Nexus
A U.S. appeals court has rejected Apple's request for a sales ban on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone, reports Reuters.
Apple had asked the full Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., to revisit a decision in October by a three-judge panel of the same court. The panel rejected Apple's request to impose a sales ban on Samsung's Nexus smartphone ahead of a trial set for March 2014.
The upcoming Nexus trial will be presided over by Judge Lucy Koh who also presided over the recent case where Apple won a $1.05 billion verdict against Samsung.
The appeals court rejected Apple's request for the ban without detailed explanation or any published dissents.
