Apple to Win German Ban on Samsung Tablet Sales, Judge Says

Apple Inc.’s intellectual property rights are likely to be found strong enough to ban sales of Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy 10.1 tablet computers in Germany, a judge said today.

The Dusseldorf court is unlikely though to expand the ban on sales beyond Germany to other European Union countries as Apple sought, Presiding Judge Johanna Brueckner-Hofmann said in a preliminary assessment today. A ruling is scheduled for Sept. 9.
