On the same day, Apple brought a renewed motion for a permanent injunction, requesting that another injunction hearing be held as early as January 30, 2014, according to the Foss patents blog
Apple says that products named in the first (2011) lawsuits are no longer commercially relevant, so it seeks an injunction that covers "any other product not more than colorably different from an Infringing Product as to a feature found to infringe."
Last month, Apple won more than $290 million from Samsung in a do-over damages trial stemming from the same case in which Apple is seeking its sales ban request. A jury restored most of the $410.5 million Koh cut from the $1.05 billion 2012 verdict after finding it was flawed because jurors in the first trial miscalculated the period that the infringement occurred. Total damages owed by Samsung now stand at $930 million.
Apple has another case against Samsung going to trial in March over newer models, including Samsung?s Galaxy S III. Should the Judge impose a ban on the older models, Apple could argue that newer phones are the same products with new names.
