Apple Vs Samsung Lawsuit: Judge Denies Apple Injunction, No Better Luck for Samsung

Apple Vs Samsung Lawsuit: It has been well documented that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung continue to battle in court.

On Monday, Judge Lucy Koh struck a blow to both companies.

Apple Inc. (AAPL) to be Added to Several WisdomTree ETFsFirst off, let’s take a look at what happened to Apple. As reported by AppleInsider, the company was denied a “request to permanently ban sales of 26 Samsung products a jury found to infringe on patents owned by the Cupertino, Calif., company as part of a $1.05 billion decision in August.”

While this was a big win for Samsung, they didn’t leave the courtroom happy. Instead, the company was denied a motion for a new trial.

Judge Lucy Koh is in the unenviable position of overseeing this case, as each side continues to fight tooth and nail for the upper hand.

Here is a brief excerpt from Koh’s order, regarding the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) denial:

In sum, to the limited extent that Apple has been able to show that any of its harms were caused by Samsung’s illegal conduct (in this case, only trade dress dilution), Apple has not established that the equities support an injunction. Accordingly, Apple’s motion for a permanent injunction is DENIED.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) may have been disappointed with the outcome, but Samsung is in the same boat.

Here is an excerpt from the juror misconduct order, available in full at this link:

In sum, the integrity of the jury system and the Federal Rules of Evidence demand that the Court not consider Mr. Hogan’s post-verdict statements concerning the jury’s decision-making process. None of the cases Samsung cites suggests otherwise. Because the Court cannot consider these inadmissible statements in determining whether to hold an evidentiary hearing, there is no evidence properly before the Court to require such a hearing. Instead, the Court must apply the well established presumption that the jury followed the law.

Nobody knows what is going to happen next, but it is safe to say that appeals could be coming in the near future – especially from the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) camp.
