The appeal was lodged by Apple following the company’s unsuccessful bid to ban certain Samsung handsets after winning a landmark $1.05 billion verdict in August. Apple is pushing for the lawsuit to move forward, and notes there is

Both parties have until March 7 to submit official statements regarding the matter before Judge Koh makes a decision either way.
