Apple has managed to get the Samsung Galaxy Nexus banned for sale in the US


Samsung’s legal tussle with Apple seems never ending, as a US judge has temporarily banned the sale of the Galaxy Nexus in the US, with Apple claiming that the device copied some of the technology used in its iPhone. This comes as a bitter blow to Samsung, as it also faces a previous ban of its Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for being to similar to the Apple iPad. Both bans come from judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, and are pre-trial bans, meaning that they are only temporary while the courts look into the allegations of patent infringement by Samsung. One of the conditions stated by the pre-trial ban was that Apple post a $95m bond, to cover the damages caused by the ban if the injunction be later deemed a wrongful decision.
