Things might start to look up for Samsung after a U.S. appeals court ruled last Friday that a lower court ought to reconsider a sales ban against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 which saw Apple emerge as the victorious party in a patent dispute between Cupertino and Samsung. This particular injunction was originally in position right before a month-long trial which saw Apple and Samsung battle it out bitterly in the court of law, where Apple ended up nearly $2 billion richer (if all goes well, of course) due to the court of law siding with Apple’s numerous patent violation claims.
The thing is, the jury did not find Samsung guilty of violating the patent which was the basis for the tablet injunction, and this has caused Samsung to argue from that point of view, that the sales ban ought to be rightly lifted. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh mentioned that she was unable to act because Samsung had already appealed. The Federal U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington said on Friday that Koh can now consider the issue.
