Appeals Court Rules Apple Can Argue for Samsung Phone Ban in U.S.

There has been an ongoing re-trial between Apple and Samsung over the past week, and most recently the court ruled that Apple does indeed have the right to argue for a ban on sales of Samsung’s tablets and smartphones in the U.S. The two companies had originally met in court to decide just how much Samsung owes Apple, though it seems like the court is now more in Apple’s favor than ever.

According to¬†The Wall Street Journal, the jury in the court ruled that the presiding Judge Lucky Koh “made errors last year when she denied Apple’s request for a court injunction” on more than two dozen Samsung products. As such, the court argues that Koh should reconsider just how much damage sales of Samsung’s phones, which have been accused of being “copycat” products, has caused Apple in the United States.

It seems that Apple can continue to fight for a ban of Samsung’s phones in the U.S., though many of the phones originally in question are no longer being sold by Samsung’s retail partners. The two must still agree on a final settlement that Samsung will have to pay Apple.
