Judge decides against lifting US injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1, for now

While Samsung wasn't happy with everything in the billion dollar jury decision concerning its case vs. Apple back in August, it did find some use in a ruling that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 did not infringe Apple's design patents. Based on that, it's trying to get the months-old injunction on sales of the device lifted, but CNET and AllThingsD report Judge Lucy Koh has declined to do so at this time, citing a lack of jurisdiction. She did state that Samsung's motion raised a "substantial issue" with the injunction, but will apparently need to wait for the appeals court to send it back to her court room. The two companies still have a court date on Thursday, as well as the December 6th hearing where they'll argue about possible injunctions for some of the other devices involved in this case.
