Samsung Argues Against Apple on Smartphone Ban

Samsung sought to defeat Apple's bid for a permanent sales ban against some Samsung smartphones, arguing in court that Apple's request was an attempt to instill fear among telecom carriers and retailers that carry Samsung's products. At a hearing in federal court in San Jose, California, Samsung attorney Kathleen Sullivan told U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh that the injunction would give the iPhone maker an opening to come back to court quickly and argue that newer Samsung products should also be banned.
