Samsung wants to reassure employees, shareholders and consumers. Apple also asked the court to ban some of the new 4G phones Samsung Galaxy line, and the Droid Charge on Verizon sold.
New York • The U.S. group asked the justice Apple on Monday banning U.S. sales of eight mobile phones from rival Samsung, after winning a major victory in court over patent violation that faces the South Korean giant.
The application includes phones sold to U.S. customers by ATT, Verizon and T-Mobile, which according to the opinion of a jury in a federal court on Friday, violated patents of the iconic Apple iPhone smartphone.
Apple also asked the court to ban some of the new 4G phones Samsung Galaxy line, and the Droid Charge on Verizon sold.
The case, in which the jury ordered a compensation of one billion dollars for patent violation, does not include the new Samsung phone Galaxy S III, released after the lawsuit but under other litigation.
Apple asked the District Court of the United States in San Jose, California (west), issue an injunction against the eight devices while discussing a permanent injunction.
The phones in question are the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 ATT model, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, T-Mobile Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
Samsung meanwhile asked the court to dismiss the injunction to prevent the sale of its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, after the jury considers that it did not violate design patents Apple tablet, the iPad.
The judge in the case, Lucy Koh, had issued the mandate on June 26.
The South Korean firm said the court should retain the deposit of $ 2.6 million for damage Apple.
The petition said that Samsung “is entitled to recover damages caused by improper injunction, and the court should retain the deposit so you can do it.”
Koh scheduled a hearing for Sept. 20 to consider applying for an injunction against Samsung devices. Then also hear requests from Samsung to reduce or drop the charges and requesting Apple for “punitive” damages, which could triple the damages.
Ironically, several reports said they were taking advantage of American consumers to buy more devices from Samsung to anticipate a possible ban on its sale, analysts said.
