Apple Files Patent Suit Against Samsung in South Korea

Apple Inc. has filed a lawsuit in South Korea, claiming Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. infringed upon several patents, a court official said, in the companies' latest legal tussle over smartphone and tablet devices. The litigation comes as Samsung filed patent suits in South Korea, Japan and Germany in April over the U.S. company's iPhone and iPad after Apple claimed Samsung's Galaxy line "slavishly" copied its products.
