(Reuters) – Apple failed to convince a U.S. judge to block Samsung Electronics from selling some Galaxy smartphones and tablets in the U.S. market, depriving the iPhone and iPad maker of crucial leverage in a global patent battle between the two companies. In a ruling released late on Friday, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California denied Apple’s request for a preliminary injunction against Samsung. The two companies are engaged in a bruising legal battle that includes more than 20 cases in 10 countries as the they jostle for the top spot in the smartphone and tablet markets.
