If you thought the Apple v. Samsung cases were over with Apple’s landslide victory in San Jose, there are actually a handful of cases in various countries around the world that are still pending. One of those cases is back in the same San Jose courtroom from last month, and in a move that surprised absolutely nobody, Samsung has informed U.S. Judge Lucy Koh that they will likely add Apple’s newly released to its patent infringement suit against Apple in the U.S. The filing isn’t expected to affect iPhone 5 sales in the short-term, according to the Wall Street Journal.
From the court filing:
“Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product.” - Samsung
The current U.S. case was filed back in February 2012, and Judge Koh will once again head up the courtroom. Each company is accusing the other of copying eight of their patents. The trial is still a ways away, with a court date tentatively set for March 2014.
