Apple Successfully Blocks Sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

This evening, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh granted Apple’s request to stop U.S. sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in lieu of an ongoing patent dispute with Samsung.  Although this motion was previously denied in December, the judge acquiesced today saying “Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products”.

This ruling will go into effect once Apple posts a $2.6 million bond to “protect against damages suffered by Samsung if the injunction is later found to have been wrong”.
