Judge Refuses to Block Imports of iPhones in Qualcomm Patent Case

A U.S. trade judge declined to block the importation of Apple Inc. iPhones with chips from Intel Corp., handing a major defeat to Qualcomm Inc. in its high-stakes legal dispute with the iPhone maker. A U.S. International Trade Commission judge said Apple’s phones infringed one Qualcomm patent related to power management technology, but denied the chipmaker’s request for a ban on the import of some iPhones into the United States.
