WASHINGTON, D.C. - Finding that Apple Inc. presented some evidence of a "causal nexus" between infringing smartphone and tablet devices sold by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and a loss of sales and market share, a Federal Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Nov. 18 vacated in part a lower court's denial of Apple's motion for a permanent injunction and remanded for further consideration (Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., et al., No. 2013-1129, Fed. Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 23167).
