Apple looks to add more products to Samsung patent lawsuit

  • Apple has requested a federal court to add six more products to its patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics.

    The move is the latest in an ongoing legal battle between the two companies.

    The case is one of two patent infringement lawsuits pending in the U.S. District Court in San Jose by Apple against Samsung.

    Apple is seeking to add the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the Samsung Galaxy S III running the new Android "Jelly Bean" operating system, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, the Samsung Rugby Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini to its lawsuit, according to a court filing on Friday.

    Apple filed the lawsuit in February, claiming that various Samsung products had infringed eight of its patents.

    Samsung denied the allegations and filed a cross-complaint stating that Apple's iPhone and iPad infringed eight of its patents.

    In August, an earlier lawsuit filed by Apple led to a $1.05 billion jury verdict against Samsung.
