Apple files another US patent suit against Samsung

Nancy Weil | Feb. 13, 2012
Apple has filed another U.S. patent lawsuit against Samsung Electronics and is seeking a preliminary injunction asking a federal judge to halt sales of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone while the case makes its way through the court.

Apple contends in the new U.S. lawsuit that it "has been forced to relentlessly pursue Samsung all over the world" and "yet while these cases progress -- even after this Court found Apple likely to succeed on its infringement claims against prior Samsung devices -- Samsung continues to launch infringing copycat products with impunity, all with the assumption that courts, including this court, will not stop Samsung before the gain to Samsung, and harm to Apple, is virtually irreversible."

Representatives of Samsung could not immediately be reached to comment about the lawsuit. The company has, however, continued to defend itself against the lawsuits Apple has filed worldwide.
