Seeking the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington to re-examine the case.
Apple has appealed the recent US District Court Judge Lucy Koh’s ruling rejecting iPhone maker’s bid to ban sales of Samsung smartphones that allegedly infringed on the its patented technologies.
In its appeal, the iPhone maker is seeking the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington to re-examine the case.
Apple’s plea to ban more than 20 Samsung smartphones was rejected by the federal judge for the second time on 06 March, which were under consideration in the companies’ initial US patent trial two years ago.
Koh’s earlier ruling to reject sales ban comes as Apple failed to argue successfully how it was harmed by Samsung’s patent infringement, Bloomberg reported.
Further, the Federal Circuit ordered reconsidering her ruling, stating too high a standard were set in necessitating the iPhone maker to prove that patented features of its devices have been the ‘sole driver’ of customer demand.
In a battle to win the world’s best smartphone maker crown, Apple and Samsung have been accusing each other of infringing their patented patents, leading to a long patent dispute between the two companies in over 10 countries.
Apple has already won US jury rulings against the South Korean manufacturer totalling about $930m.
