Judge sets September 20th date for hearing on preliminary injunctions; Apple is grateful
With the Apple v. Samsung patent trial verdict in the books, the next stage for Apple is to ask the court for injunctions on those Samsung devices that were found to infringe on Apple's patents. Judge Lucy Koh has given the Cupertino based tech firm until August 29th to file a motion with the court. Samsung will have 14 days to respond to the motion after which Apple will have another two days to respond to that filing. Then, on September 20th, Judge Koh will hear from both sides and rule which of Samsung's devices, if any, will be hit with a preliminary injunction.

Meanwhile, Apple released a statement following the verdict saying that the trial was about more than just patents or money. Apple claims that the suit was about values. The company says it values innovation and originality and applauds the court for sendng the message that stealing isn't right. Earlier on Friday, we passed along Samsung's comments which were tinged with an edge as you might expect.
