US court rejects Apple’s bid to fast-track Samsung sales ban

The court ruled that Apple should follow the standard appeals process

By CBR Staff Writer

The US Court of Appeals has turned down Apple’s request to fast-track its bid to ban several Samsung Electronics phones.

The court ruled that Apple should follow and proceed normally through the appeals process in which a three-judge panel will first consider the company’s appeal.

Apple intended to skip the three-judge panel’s appeal process in order to go straight to a full appeals court.

Apple and Samsung’s battle in the appeals court comes after the iPhone maker won a $1.05bn verdict last year against the South Korean firm in a California trial court.

After winning $1.05bn in damages, Apple sought a permanent ban on several older Samsung phones but US District Court Judge Lucy Koh denied the iPhone maker’s request.

Last week, the US Court of Appeals also rejected Apple’s request to ban sales of Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Nexus smartphone, ahead of a trial which is scheduled for March 2014.

Last month, US District Judge Lucy Koh refused Apple’s request to increase the $1.05bn damages awarded to it by a jury last August.
