A United States Court of Appeals on Friday denied Samsung’s (005930KSsecond attempt to stop its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet from being banned, The Register reported. The court upheld District Judge Lucy Koh’s injunction against the device, which was found to be infringing on Apple (AAPL) IP. Along with its decision to not stay the injunction on the Galaxy Tab, the court also refused the South Korean company’s request to speed up the appeal process. “Samsung may of course significantly self-expedite the case by filing its own brief early. Samsung, however, has not shown that the time for Apple to file its brief should be shortened,” the court said in its ruling. The only way for Samsung to get the ban lifted is to argue at trial, which is scheduled to begin on July 30th. On the other side of the pond, a U.K. judge recently ruled that Apple must publicly admit Samsung’s tablet designs do not copy the iPad.
