U.S. Judge to Reconsider Ban on Some Samsung Products

A U.S. appeals court on Monday ordered a California judge to reconsider imposing a permanent sales ban on some Samsung products.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said (U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is Apple Inc v Samsung Electronics Co., Inc. The case number is 2013-1129) that a lower court abused its discretion in denying the injunction with respect to utility patents and asked it to reconsider.
Apple had requested the injunction in December 2012 because of a ruling that Samsung products infringed on three design and three utility patents related to mobile devices.
Last year, Apple was awarded over $1 billion after it convinced a jury that Samsung copied various iPhone features.
In March U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose ruled that the jury had made errors in some calculations, impacting about $400 million of the verdict.
Koh ordered a retrial of that portion of the original award. Closing arguments are scheduled for Tuesday.
