Remember that important condition for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 preliminary injunction in the U.S. to take effect? It has been fulfilled.
According to a new report, Apple yesterday posted the $2.6 million bond asked by a court in California for the preliminary injunction it requested against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S. to be enforced.
Apple was granted a preliminary injunction on Tuesday by Judge Lucy Koh of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, San Jose.
The judge, however, included a stipulation asking for a $2.6 million bond by Apple to cover damages incurred by Samsung if the preliminary injunction is later found to be illegal in the final determination of the case.
According to Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents, “Apple didn’t hesitate to post its $2.6 million bond to protect Samsung against the possibility of a successful appeal, in which case the preliminary injunction would be found to have been improperly granted.”
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 now cannot be sold in the U.S. by Samsung or its subsidiaries.
