Court rejects Apple bid to fast-track ban on Samsung phones
Monday, February 4, 2013 @ 4:55pm

The Federal US Circuit Court of Appeals has turned down an Apple attempt to fast-track a ban on several Samsung phones, Reuters reports. A judge ruled against the pretrial ban last December, but Apple chose to appeal that ruling alongside one from October. Because of today's events, the appeal of the December decision will have to be considered by a three-judge panel before going to the full appeals court.



An appeal of the October ruling was rejected last week. Had it been successful, Samsung's Galaxy Nexus would've been made illegal to sell in the US until at least March 2014, the date of an upcoming Apple v. Samsung trial. Although the phone is no longer Google's flagship, it continues to be sold by US carriers.
