German Court Tosses Pair of Apple, Samsung Suits

There are two fewer lawsuits in Apple’s patent battle with Samsung today, thanks to the decisive action of a German court.

Judge Andreas Voss of the Mannheim Regional Court this morning threw out two lawsuits in the case — one that Apple brought against Samsung, and another that Samsung brought against Apple. The former involved Apple’s claim that Samsung infringed on its slide-to-lock patent; the latter, Samsung’s claim that Apple has violated one of its 3G/UMTS-essential patents.

Samsung vowed to appeal the dismissal of its lawsuit against Apple, and noted that a separate case regarding four alleged patent infringements is still pending in Germany.
