Samsung Seeks Lifting of Ban on U.S. Sales of Galaxy Tablet

Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Samsung Electronics Co., ordered by a U.S. jury to pay Apple Inc. more than $1 billion for infringing six mobile device patents, asked a judge to lift a ban on the U.S. sales of the Galaxy 10.1 tablet computer.

The jury decided the Galaxy device didn’t infringe an Apple patent so the preliminary ban on its sale should be dissolved, Samsung said in a filing yesterday in federal court in San Jose, California.

Samsung fell the most in almost four years in Seoul trading today after the Aug. 24 decision by the San Jose jury. The South Korean company said in June, when Cupertino, California-based Apple won the ban on U.S. sales of the Galaxy tablet, that it wouldn’t have a significant impact on its business.

The Suwon, South Korea-based company said in yesterday’s filing that it’s entitled to recover damages caused by the imposition of the improper ban on the sales of the tablet. Samsung proposed that U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh rule on the request without a hearing.

The case is Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., 11-cv-01846, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).
