Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction against sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the United States.
The ruling was handed down today by U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, according to a Reuters report.
Apple has been trying desperately to get Samsung's tablet banned from the U.S. Apple scored a win last October when Koh ruled that Samsung's line of Galaxy tablets infringe on Apple's patents. However, she declined to grant a request to ban the device from import last December, concluding that allowing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to remain on sale would not harm Apple enough to justify the injunction. She also said such an injunction would likely benefit other gadget makers at Samsung's expense.
