California court denies Apple injunction against Samsung products

08/27, 4:03pm

The US District Court for the Northern District of California has again denied Apple a permanent injunction against Samsung products accused of violating three of its patents.

The ruling is related to one of the post-trial motions stemming from the second Apple-Samsung patent trial. Koh also denied any injunctions on products found guilty of infringing from the first trial as well.
