Samsung, aiming to find a silver lining in its devastating court loss to Apple, has asked a court to remove its previously ordered sales ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet.
The company yesterday filed that motion with a federal court in San Jose, according to Bloomberg, which obtained the court documents. The company cited Friday's landmark ruling, in which a jury found that Samsung had not actually violated a patent that caused a ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Back in June,against Samsung's tablet in the U.S. Since then, Samsung has tried to lift that ban, saying that the infringement didn't hold up. Until now, it didn't have enough firepower to win that argument. It's possible now that it might.
The possibility of reinstating sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 might be the sole good news Samsung has seen since last Friday. That's when a jury. The jury found Samsung in violation of five of six Apple patents.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung has requested damages from Apple since its Galaxy Tab 10.1 has been banned without cause. The company also asked Judge Lucy Koh to rule on the request without a hearing, according to Bloomberg.
CNET has contacted Samsung for comment on the Bloomberg report. We will update this story when we have more information.
