Apple files for ban on Samsung devices; both seek retrial on second suit
But considering that the evidence used by Apple to support the filing is a consumer survey, similar to the one used to seek a sales ban after the first trial, the odds are not in favor of the company receiving the injunction. And even if a sales ban were granted to Apple, Samsung could simply devise some hastily devised workarounds to bypass the infringement claims by Apple.
Apple and Samsung also both filed with the court, a motion for judgment as a matter of law. Samsung's filing took place late Friday and is sealed. Apple's filing asks for a directed verdict against several Samsung devices, treble damages or a complete retrial. The filing cites some of "Samsung's improper and prejudicial statements to the jury," and also adds some of Apple's unhappiness with the $119.6 million that it was awarded by the jury.
