Apple wins 2nd US ban on Samsung Galaxy

2012-06-30 09:39

Seoul - An American judge has ordered Samsung to halt US sales of its Galaxy Nexus smartphone while the court considers Apple's claim the South Korean company infringed iPhone patents.

It was Apple's second victory in a week in a Californian court against Android devices.

In a ruling on Friday, Judge Lucy Koh says that the Galaxy Nexus won't be sold in the US during the trial.

The same judge ordered Samsung to halt sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer earlier this week.

The latest ruling is a blow to Samsung Electronics Company and Google Incorporated, which jointly announced the smartphone in October 2011.

Apple Incorporated and Samsung have been embroiled in multiple lawsuits in Asia, North America and Europe accusing each other of patent infringement.

    Ironic - isn't it? Years ago Apple used to accuse Microsoft of using their market dominance to bully the smaller companies by using the law to effectively stop them competing - now Apple are doing the same thing.
