BANNED: A judge ordered Samsung Electronics Co. to halt sales of its Galaxy 10.1 tablet computer while the court considers Apple's claim the South Korean tech giant illegally copied the design of the popular iPad.
THE REASONING: Although U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh didn't rule directly on the merits of the case, she said Apple Inc.'s lawsuit appeared likely to prevail.
SAMSUNG'S REACTION: Samsung said it was disappointed. It said the ruling shouldn't have a significant impact on its business "as we possess a diverse range of Galaxy Tab products."
