Apple Dropped its Patent Suit against the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

I know you have heard about the patent suit filed by Apple with the US District Court in Northern District of California, it was back in November when a reply in a motion to amend Apple’s claims against Samsung, Apple agreed to drop the suit for the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini as a response to the Korean Tech giant’s opposition of adding new products to the upcoming case.

Apple seemed to have widened its assertions with the proposed November 23rd motion in which the firm have added the following Samsung devices to their list to be heard in 2014: Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy S3 with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi, Galaxy Tab 2 10.i and Rugby Pro.

Samsung countered the said addition by saying that they are not “making, using, offering to sell or importing the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini in the US,” and that the Korean Tech giants have opposed the inclusion of the Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Rugby Pro, and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, because “Apple did not serve its claim charts for these products until November 30th, after the November 23rd date identified by the Court.”

Now, Apple is not to contest the partial opposition and claimed that they’ve misunderstood the November 15th court order regarding limitation on assertions (which their rival pointed out). If the Court will approve Samsung’s reading/understanding of the said order, Apple “will of course voluntarily withdraw any infringement contentions” made after the said date.

Apple also said that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is available via retail stores in the like of Amazon, but the company have agreed to withdraw their claim (just as long as it can be reinstated if and when the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini will see an official US sale.
