Apple scores second legal win against Samsung in a week

  • A U.S. judge on Friday granted Apple’s request for a pre-trial injunction against the sale of Samsung Electronics Galaxy Nexus phone, resulting in the iPhone maker’s second legal victory against Samsung in a week.

    Apple and Samsung are locked in a legal war in several countries, accusing each other of patent violations as they aim to dominate the fast-growing market for mobile devices.

    Friday's decision comes days after a pre-trial ban was enforced on sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, a tablet computer that runs on Google’s Android and competes directly with the iPad.
