The ITC ruled last year that Motorola's devices did not infringe upon Apple's patents related to multitouch technology.

After Apple's case was dismissed, the company appealed ITC decision and won. The Federal Circuit appeals court disagreed with the ITC that the '607 patent was invalid and reversed their decision on the '828 patent. The case will now be sent back to the ITC for a new investigation and another ruling.

"The Smartphone has defined modern life. Be it in the workplace, the home, airports, or entertainment venues across America, individuals are tethered to their handheld devices. Not long ago, users primarily spoke into these devices. Today, fingers tapping, grazing, pinching, or scrolling the screen is a ubiquitous image that reflects how we conduct business, work, play, and live. The asserted patent in this case is an invention that has propelled not just technology, but also dramatically altered how humans across the globe interact and communicate. It marks true innovation."

If Apple were to win this time, it could get an import ban on older Motorola devices like the Droid X or XOOM, which would not have a major effect on Motorola since those device are no longer popular.
