Samsung's request to expedite the appeals hearing was also shot down by the appeals court. The court did say that Samsung could move things along faster by filing its opening brief as soon as possible. At the same time, the court said that Apple will not get any extensions for filing its response.
The Samsung GALAXY Nexus can be sold now, thanks to the appeals court's stay of the District Court's injunction
More important is the injunction on the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, which has received a stay of the injunction ordered by the District Court. Considering that Sammy did get the stay on this case, the appeals court thinks that Samsung has a better shot at prevailing in this case. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Samsung has already removed local search from the phone. And as we already pointed out, it has preemptively removed local search from the AT&T and Sprint versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The so-called Siri '604 patent relating to universal search is at the heart of the patent issue between the two manufacturers. The unlocked GSM version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean installed, has returned to the Google Play Store where it can be purchased.
