After crushing Samsung in their legal dispute on nearly all asserted patents and claims, Apple is keeping the ball rolling to the extent that they’re now seeking injunctions for 8 specific Samsung devices.
Samsung, for what it’s worth, has vowed to fight the proposed injunctions with all necessary means, but they can rest easy for a while because Reuters is reporting that a hearing on the matter won’t take place until December 6.
And Koh, true to form, is trying to keep things neat, orderly, and as brief as can be for such a complicated matter.
To wit, the order reads in part:
The page limits set forth herein will be strictly enforced. Any argument that is not explicitly articulated within the briefing page limits will be disregarded. Any supporting documentation shall be for corroboration purposes solely and shall not be used as a vehicle for circumventing the Court’s page limits. Any citations to the record must include the relevant testimony or exhibit language. Any single-spaced bullets in an attempt to circumvent the briefing page limits will be disregarded.
While the two parties were initially set to meet on September 20 to talk about Apple’s motion for injunctions, that date will instead be taken up by arguments regarding the permanent injunction of the Galaxy Tab 10.1. If you recall, the jury in the Apple/Samsung dispute found that the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is currently subject to an injunction, did not violate any of Apple’s iPad trade-dress. Consequently, Samsung is moving to have the injunction lifted.
