Samsung challenges Galaxy Tab ban in Australia

Summary:The Korean company has contested the basis of the injunction awarded to Apple against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which is currently banned from sale in Australia

Samsung has alleged that the interlocutory injunction awarded to Apple against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia was incorrect and a leap of logic, all the while pushing for the case to be expedited in the courts.

In a case presented before Justice Lindsay Foster in the Federal Court of New South Wales on Thursday, Samsung contested the basis on which Justice Annabel Bennett gave her ruling two weeks ago.

Samsung complained on multiple grounds. In Bennett's ruling, she said that Samsung's "unwillingness" to move the case to an early final hearing stage, counted against the Korean gadget maker. "[Bennett] based her response on the basis that Samsung wouldn't accept an early final hearing, which tipped the balance against us," Samsung's legal counsel said in court. "That is a flawed proposition."
