Koh wrote in a ruling Wednesday that she would grant Samsung's request to lift the ban if she could, but no longer had authority to make the call since the firm appealed to a higher court to have the ban overturned.
Samsung said on Thursday it was "disappointed" by Koh's decision.
Seperately, the S. Korean company said on Thursday it planned to add Apple's iPhone 5 to its existing patent lawsuits against the U.S. rival.
"Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product," it said in a U.S. court filing.
"Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models."
The latest legal step comes as Apple booked orders for over two million iPhone 5 models in the first 24 hours and the model hits store shelves on Friday.
