Legal Lots of news about Apple vs. Samsung (and vice versa) in both the US and Europe today. In the US, judge Koh dealth two blows: one to Samsung (no retrial based on juror misconduct), the other to Apple (no permanent sales ban). In Europe, in the meantime, Samsung announced it will cease all lawsuits injunction requests against Apple... But only in Europe.

Won't likely stand on appeal

Well, it was expected that Judge Koh would deny Samsung's request for new trial, etc - mostly because she denies between 66% and 90% of what they request, and grant Apple's requests in about same proportions. So nothing unexpected.

That said, it is highly unlikely that it would stand on appeal - e.g. she's very likely to be overruled - especially when the sum of all her orders are reviewed, which I think would reveal at least a little bias towards Apple.

So it just helps clear the way for appeal.

Hopefully, she'll step aside when the appeals court sends it back for another trial.
