US Judge rules in favor of Samsung, rejects Apple’s bid to halt Galaxy sales

Samsung and Apple are both locked in a heated legal battle over their tablets and smartphones, and while Apple has gotten its hits in early, it seems that Samsung has managed to come back fightin’. In a  ruling released late on Friday, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California has denied Apple’s request for a preliminary injunction against the Korean electronics giant from selling their Galaxy line of tablets and smartphones. Judge Lucy Koh said that “It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed.” Naturally Apple was mum about the matter, but Samsung rep Jason Kim said that the company welcomed the decision,  and says that “this ruling confirms our long-held view that Apple’s arguments lack merit.” Of course, the whole affair isn’t over yet, and we’re pretty sure the folks at Cupertino isn’t going to take this lying down.
