“Last week I reported on Apple’s staunch opposition to Samsung’s request for early access to product samples of (and packaging and marketing materials related to) the next generation of the iPad and the iPhone,” Florian Mueller reports for FOSS Patents.

“On Friday, there was a court hearing to discuss Samsung’s request, but Judge Lucy Koh did not rule from the bench,” Mueller reports. “On the eve of the hearing, Apple had amended its complaint.”

Mueller reports, “Yesterday (Tuesday, June 21, 2011) the judge entered her decision on Samsung’s iPhone 5/iPad 3 request: The good news for Apple is that Samsung’s motion is denied at least for the time being. This comes as little surprise… The potentially bad news for Apple is that the court order contains a passage hinting that Apple may not get a preliminary injunction against the sale of certain Samsung products in the United States at this stage.”
