Apple Watch Sales Ban Temporarily Paused

Posted December 27, 2023 at 6:35pm by iClarified
Apple has been granted a temporary pause on the ban of Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 sales in the United States.

Yesterday, the ban on sales of the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 went into full effect. Apple submitted an emergency request with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit to stay the ban, pending appeal.

Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit announced that the ban is temporarily paused while it considers the motion for a longer stay.


-----
(1) The motion for an interim stay is granted to the extent that the Remedial Orders are temporarily stayed and the government is directed not to enforce the Remedial Orders until further notice while the court considers the motion for a stay pending appeal.
(2) While the interim stay is in effect, Apple must comply with the same bond requirements set forth by the Commission in the Remedial Orders governing the Presidential Review Period.
(3) The Commission's request for a five-day extension, from January 5, 2024, to January 10, 2024, is granted. Opposition to the motion to stay pending appeal is due no later than January 10, 2024, and any reply in support is due no later than January 15, 2024.
