A legal standoff ended today, as Judge Lucy Koh has dissolved the sales injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 after Samsung’s appeal had been remanded to her by the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Judge Koh’s decision is based on the jury’s findings in Apple v. Samsung that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 didn’t infringe on Apple’s D’889 patent. If you’ll recall, the judge had previously denied Samsung’s motion to dissolve the injunction, having cited a lack of jurisdiction while the case was in front of the appeals court. Unsurprisingly, she decided to approve the motion once the case was kicked back to her courtroom. Whether we see the Galaxy Tab 10.1 hit the ban list again following the December 6th hearing remains to be seen, but in the meantime, perhaps you can kick back and enjoy the eye of the storm.
Update: In related courtroom drama, Samsung has filed the initial courtroom documents that assert the iPhone 5 infringes on its patents. At least the company is good for its word. [Reuters]
