Apple Seeks Ban on Samsung’s Cellular Galaxy Tab Computer

Apple Inc. said a court should bar U.S. sales of the cellular version of Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer even though the product wasn’t covered by an Aug. 24 verdict in the patent trial between the companies, according to a court filing.

Samsung, ordered by a federal court jury in San Jose, California, to pay Apple Inc. more than $1 billion for infringing six mobile device patents, asked U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to lift a ban on the U.S. sales of the Galaxy 10.1 Tab tablet. The company said that the ban should be dissolved because the jury decided the Galaxy device didn’t infringe an Apple design patent upon which the June 26 injunction was based, Samsung said in a court filing yesterday.
