Samsung vs Apple: Galaxy S3 maker urges court to keep allowing Galaxy Nexus sales
Washington: Samsung has urged a US appeals court to stand by its denial of Apple Inc’s request to ban sales of the Galaxy Nexus smartphone while Apple challenges its patent, Reuters reports.
In October, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit blocked Apple’s bid for a pretrial sales ban. Apple has asked all nine active Federal Circuit judges to reconsider that decision, a process known as “en banc” review.
Last year, the legal precedent puts Samsung in a much stronger position by allowing its products to remain on store shelves while it fights a global patent battle against Apple over smartphone technology.
In its court filing last Friday, Samsung argued that en banc review was unnecessary because Apple did not have enough evidence to show a “causal nexus” between its patented search capability & iPhone sales to justify a ban on sales of the Galaxy Nexus.
The Federal Circuit’s panel ruling against Apple used “well established” reasoning that does not conflict with U.S. Supreme Court precedent, Samsung argued.
