This is never going to end, is it?
Earlier this week, we reported that the Federal Circuit was giving Apple a third chance to get an injunction blocking the sale of Samsung smartphones and tablets. After District Court Judge Lucy Koh ordered an initial injunction, the Federal Circuit reversed, ordering her to apply "causal nexus" analysis. She did, and denied the injunction, but now the Federal Circuit thinks she applied the "causal nexus" analysis too harshly, and has kicked the case back again.
Meanwhile, in Judge Koh's court, the jury is trying to decide damages. But the USPTO may have made the entire endeavor fruitless by invalidating Apple's "pinch to zoom" patent.
