SAN JOSE -- A federal judge has refused to rescind a court order banning Samsung from selling its Galaxy Tab 10.1 computer in the U.S.
A jury last month awarded Apple $1.05 billion after concluding several Samsung smartphones infringed on Apple's iPhone patents.
But the jury rejected Apple's allegations that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 illegally copied the iPad.
That prompted Samsung to ask U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to dissolve the ban imposed on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in June. In a Monday ruling, Koh refused because a Samsung appeal of her original order is still pending.
