Apparently, the USPTO confirms Apple’s patent is invalid in regards to the infamous lawsuit against Samsung. As a result, Samsung’s penalty could be reduced.
Judge Koh has ruled in favor of Samsung once again, stating that their patent infringement was unintentional. What does this mean for Samsung?
The Samsung vs Apple battle continues on, much to the surprise of no one. In recent court news, the Judge denied Samsung’s request to keep their sales figures a secret. Samsung now must make public all of their sales records for a number of devices.
As expected, Samsung and Apple are returning to Judge Lucy Koh’s courtroom. At today’s hearing, Apple hopes to convince the court to block a total of 26 Samsung items from being sold.
Last month we reported that Samsung was claiming that do to misconduct on the port of the jury foreman in the Apple vs Samsung case, the case should be thrown out. Apple has filed its official response with the court.
A U.S. Court of Appeals has now overturned an injunction on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. According to the reversal ruling, Lucy Koh and the district court in California had abused its discretion when they granted the injunction in the first place.
As things wrap up, Judge Lucy Koh insisted that both company’s CEOs meet one last time in attempts to reach a settlement outside of the court. Koh says that see doesn’t want to waste either company’s time, but feels that both sides are in possible danger. As such, an outside agreement might be the best solution. Apple and Samsung have agreed to the meeting, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they can come to any type of agreement.
