US court date set for ruling on Samsung ban
Court will decide on permanent ban for eight Samsung mobiles in December
The US District Court in San Jose, California, has set a date to hear Apple's request to permanently ban sales of eight Samsung mobile phones.
The court hearing is set for 6th December, to decide on a permanent injunction against the Samsung devices, which the court ruled infringed on Apple's patents.
The phones, which are older models, include the Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T model, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile model, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and Galaxy Prevail.
The court has also set a hearing for 20th September, to decide on a request from Samsung, to overturn a ban on sales of its Galaxy Tab 10.1, which the jury had decided did not infringe Apple's IP.
Apple was awarded $1.05 billion by the court last week after it found that Samsung had copied a number of features of Apple's iPhone range.
