Apple-Samsung Case: Date Set for Hearing Over Phone Ban
Apple’s legal motion to have some Samsung mobile phones banned in the US will now be heard in court in December.
A jury on Friday ordered Samsung to pay Apple more than $1bn (£664m) after ruling it had infringed several of the iPhone maker’s patents.
The judge had originally suggested that Apple’s request would be heard next month, but now says that a hearing will take place on 6 December.
Shares in Samsung rose 3% on Tuesday on news of the delay of the hearing.
The South Korean firm had $12bn wiped off its market value on Monday as its shares suffered their biggest drop since October 2008.
