Judge Denies Apple’s Request for Permanent Injunction Against Samsung

apple-samsung-trial

Summary: A California judge has rejected Apple’s request for a permanent injunction against Samsung despite acknowledging the company’s patent infringement. 

The latest bid by Apple for a permanent injunction against Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has been rejected by a United States judge, according to a report from Reuters.

A $120 million jury verdict was awarded to Apple against Samsung earlier in 2014 for three patents held by Apple. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose ruled on Wednesday that Apple will not receive an injunction against Samsung. The request from Apple was for Samsung to stop selling infringing features on the smartphones it offers that are in direct relation to the patents Apple holds.

Apple did not issue any comment on the ruling. Samsung issued the following statement about the ruling: “We remain committed to providing American consumers with a wide choice of innovative products.”

Koh said in her ruling that the reputation of Apple as an innovator “has proved extremely robust” even with the patent infringement from Samsung.

Apple has not demonstrated that it will suffer irreparable harm to its reputation or goodwill as an innovator without an injunction,” Koh wrote.

The case was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
