Judge Lucy Koh has ruled on Monday that the International Samsung GT-i9000, GT-i9100 and Galaxy Ace will be removed from the list of the accused devices and won’t be a part of Apple vs. Samsung trial anymore. This ruling came directly after the end of Apple’s case presentation.
According to the Verge, Samsung’s counsel argued in the trial’s proceedings against these three handsets being included. Samsung’s counsel said none of these devices were brought by Samsung in the US for sale. Samsung’s GT-i9000 and GT i9100 are the international version of the Galaxy S and S2 and the Galaxy Ace is carried the same branding when the company released the device in the US.
Samsung also said that Apple didn’t present sufficient proof for the case and asked the judge to let the company walk out the door without mounting a defense in an hour-long argument. The Korean company also argued that why Apple didn’t provide a reason why the three devices should be included in the list of accused devices. Sammy also used DiamondTouch tablet and LivTile UI prior art as defense against Apple patents yesterday.
