Apple vs. Samsung ITC hearing moved back 6 days by Judge Thomas Pender
Judge Pender's heavy caseload is the reason for the 6 day delay in the start of the investigation. The judge has another two cases involving Apple on his schedule including one claim filed by HTC and other involving HTC subsidiary VIA Technologies. Unlike the Federal court which can provide financial relief but rarely bans the import or sale of a product, the ITC leans toward granting injunctive relief over applying a financial penalty. This means that the same Samsung devices that Apple failed to win a ban on in District court could end up getting banned by the ITC.
