Appeals Court Orders New Look at Samsung Injunction

A U.S. appeals court breathed new life into Apple's long-running attempt to secure an injunction banning the sale of some devices made by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, ordering a California judge to reconsider imposing a permanent sales ban on some Samsung products. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said that the lower court abused its discretion in denying Apple's request for an injunction of Samsung devices with respect to utility patents and asked it to reconsider.
