Judge Lucy Koh who has put an injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 for infringing on Apple’s design patent may need to talk with the U.K. judge that recently denied Apple’s patent lawsuit because Samsung’s Tablets are not as cool as the iPad’s.
Samsung appealed the ban and the United States Court of Appeals on Friday denied Samsung’s second attempt to stop the tablet from being banned. Along with its decision to not stay the injunction on the Galaxy Tab, the court also refused the South Korean company’s request to speed up the appeal process. “Samsung may of course significantly self-expedite the case by filing its own brief early. Samsung, however, has not shown that the time for Apple to file its brief should be shortened,” the court said in its ruling.
The trial is scheduled to begin July 30th, which is the only way Samsung can get the ban lifted by arguing the patent claim and hopefully at that time getting the ban lifted.
