Apple Request for Samsung Injunction Set for Dec. 6

Apple Inc.’s request for a permanent ban on U.S. sales of some Samsung Electronics Co. mobile devices will be considered at a Dec. 6 court hearing.

Apple is seeking a U.S. sales ban on eight models of Samsung smartphones and a tablet computer after a federal court jury found on Aug. 24 that Samsung infringed six of seven patents at stake at a trial in San Jose, California, and awarded Apple damages of $1.05 billion. Seven of the eight smartphones that Apple seeks to ban are part of Samsung’s Galaxy line.
