Apple Wins Preliminary Injunction Against Samsung Tablet

Apple Inc. won a court order immediately blocking U.S. sales of Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer as the companies continue their global patent dispute.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, issued the order yesterday after rejecting a similar request in December. Apple’s request, part of a broader patent dispute over smartphones and tablets, was based on an appeals court finding that it will probably win its patent-infringement claim relating to the Tab 10.1 tablet.
