Apple's request for early injunction against Samsung denied, Galaxy S III will launch on time

apple-vs-samsung

Score one for Samsung, folks. Apple’s attempt to hold back the Galaxy S III failed, as the request for an early injunction by Apple was denied by Lucy Koh, u.S. District Judge from San Jose. Basically, she was too busy to hear the case before June 21st, which is when the Galaxy S III will launch here in the states. This means that the Galaxy S III will remain untouched legally, at least until after the launch date. Keep in mind: this doesn’t mean that the trial won’t happen, it just won’t happen in time for Apple to manipulate utilize the court system quickly enough to keep the phone out of consumer hands.

This has the capacity to be a huge blow to Apple. According to Dan Levine, mobile Analyst:

“…delays in moving its cases through the courts is a blow to Apple’s efforts to get quick and favorable rulings that it hopes would give it an edge in the marketplace for mobile devices.”

Do you think the denial of an early injunction could harm Apple’s sales enough to make an impact? let us know in the comments.
