Apple's Motion for a Preliminary Injunction, Court's Denial and Federal Circuit Appellate Opinion

Transition between D’677 and D’087           
Recall the last blog that discussed the district court’s finding that Apple had not fulfilled its burden of showing irreparable harm. Therefore, even though Apple had shown it was likely to succeed on the merits at trial, Apple’s failure to prove irreparable harm was fatal. The district court denied a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy S 4G and Infuse 4G cell phones on the basis of Samsung’s infringement of the D’677 patent.
However, Apple had also requested an injunction against those two devices on the basis of Samsung’s alleged infringement of another patent; this time the D’087 design patent. Apple alleged that Samsung’s Galaxy S4G and Infuse 4G cell phones also infringed the D’087 patent and should be granted a preliminary injunction against those devices on that basis. The next post will walk you through Apple’s argument about the D’087 infringement issue.
