Apple Loses Bid to Ban Samsung Galaxy Nexus

1 February, 2013 Samsung


It looks like one of the best Samsung devices, the Galaxy Nexus will remain in stores because a judge has denied Apple's bid to ban sales of this cool device.


The Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. denied Apple's request to reinstate an injunction against the Galaxy Nexus that had been granted in June and lifted in October.


Thursday's ruling is yet another chapter in the epic patent dispute raging between Apple and Samsung. Apple had requested that the Nexus be banned before March 2014, when the two are expected to meet in court again. The appeals rejection is a definite win for Samsung, and its partner Google, which will now be able to keep its popular Galaxy Nexus phone on the market.


As Reuters notes, Apple can certainly bring another appeals request to the U.S. Supreme Court. It will likely, however, be more difficult to get a sales injunction against Samsung there.
