Apple’s legal motion did not stop after the recent verdict required Samsung to pay Apple more than USD 1bn for infringing several of the iPhone maker’s patents. Apple has approached the courtoom again and asked for a ban over eight Samsung smartphones.
The hearing for the case will take place on 06 December.
The judge had originally suggested next month for the hearing. The delay has resulted in an increase in Samsung shares by 3% on Tuesday.
The eight Samsung phones that Apple wants banned are: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 AT&T model, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S2 T-Mobile model, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge and galaxy Prevail.
The list does not include Samsung’s current flagship handset, the Galaxy S3, which was not involved in the case.
