Apple Renews Request for Sales Ban on Samsung Products

Apple Inc. is again seeking to ban sales in the U.S. of Samsung Electronics Co. products that were at issue in the companies’ first patent trial in California and are now no longer on the market.

The iPhone-maker yesterday asked U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose to bar sales of more than 20 smartphones and tablets, such as the Galaxy S 4G and Galaxy Tab 10.1, that a jury last year found to infringe Apple’s patents. While Koh rejected Apple’s bid for a sales ban on the infringing Samsung devices after the 2012 verdict, a federal appeals court on Nov. 18 cleared the way for the iPhone maker to pursue an injunction targeting some of its rival’s products.
