Apple Targets Samsung Phones for Sales Ban


1 comment

Apple filed paperwork Monday to ban U.S. sales of eight Samsung mobile phones following Samsung's patent infringement conviction last week. The iPhone maker wants a preliminary ban on U.S. sales pending a final injunction in the case.

The request would target Samsung's Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Galaxy Prevail and Droid Charge phones, CNet reported.

In its filing, Apple wrote that it's filing the request "to address a portion of the immediate, ongoing irreparable harm that Apple is suffering."

Last week, a jury in California found Samsung “willfully” infringed on half a dozen patents relating to Apple’s iconic iPhone and iPad. The nine-person jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages, but Judge Lucy Koh has the power to triple the amount because the infringements were found to be “willful.”

Samsung has vowed to contest the verdict.
