Now that the jury in the US Apple vs Samsung copyright infringement case has passed its verdict and awarded more than US$1 billion in damages to Apple, the Cupertino giant is seeking a ban on the sale of the Samsung devices said to have crossed the line.
Apple Insider reports that Apple said it would cause ”irreparable harm” if the units were to stay on sale.
A hearing has been set for September 20 by presiding judge Lucy Koh.
The Verge reports that “the plan is to allow Apple to file its requests by August 29, Samsung to respond within two weeks, and then the actual hearing on September 20. Koh said that she would like to give the ‘maximum time to Samsung’, which was pushing for a later hearing — though Koh’s own scheduling conflicts (and likely her consistent push to keep the trial moving along quick) kept it sooner.”
