Yesterday Judge Lucy Koh set a hearing date for Apple’s application to have eight Samsung devices barred from sale in the US.
The 20 September date will go ahead but it will only concern Samsung’s attempts to have the injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 lifted.
The hearing on Apple’s request for a sales ban on Samsung products has been scheduled for 6 December, which will lessen the effects of any injunctions granted against the devices. Samsung’s request to have the jury’s decision set aside will be heard on the same day.
Judge Koh said “Having considered the scope of Apple’s preliminary injunction request, the additional posttrial motions that the parties have already filed and will file, and the substantial overlap between the analysis required for Apple’s preliminary injunction motion and the parties’ various other posttrial motions, the Court believes consolidation of the briefing and hearing on the post-trial motions is appropriate.”
