Apple on Friday filed an appeal to a judge's ruling from earlier this week that denied a sales ban on Samsung devices.
US District Judge Lucy Kohagainst Samsung for selling certain older-model smartphones. Those devices named by Apple included the Admire, , Galaxy Note, 2, Galaxy S2, Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, Galaxy S3, and Stratosphere.
Apple's injunction request stems back to itsin May. The jury found Samsung infringed on several Apple patents -- and it was these infringed-upon patents that Apple wanted included in its injunction request.
One of the reasons that Koh may have decided not to impose the injunction against Samsung is that Apple reported stellar profit and solid iPhone sales in itsreleased in July.
"Apple has not demonstrated that it will suffer irreparable harm to its reputation or goodwill as an innovator without an injunction," Koh wrote in her ruling.
The two companies have been battling over patents for years in various suits, countersuits, and trials. But, it looks like the warring could soon come to an end. Earlier this month, the two companiesagainst each other outside of the US.
We've contacted Samsung about Apple's appeal and will update the report when we have more information.
