Judge Lucy Koh, the U.S district judge presiding over the Apple-Samsung case, announced in a written order that a 6th December hearing is set to consider Apple's request for an injunction against Samsung devices, and Samsung's appeal to overturn the verdict.

A preliminary hearing was initially set on 20th September to consider the injunction. However, it has since been changed to cover Samsung's efforts to lift an injunction against its Galaxy Tab 10.1 after it has been revealed to not infringe on an Apple design patent. 

AllThingsD- “Having considered the scope of Apple’s preliminary injunction request, the additional posttrial motions that the parties have already filed and will file, and the substantial overlap between the analysis required for Apple’s preliminary injunction motion and the parties’ various other posttrial motions, the Court believes consolidation of the briefing and hearing on the post-trial motions is appropriate,” Koh said

The December hearing date may be a blessing for Samsung as it has more time to make engineering and software tweaks to the devices. If these measures fail to avoid litigation, they are unlikely to have much impact on Samsung's sales as the models are quite dated.
