Will Apple (AAPL) Stock Be Affected By Samsung (SSNLF) Sales Ban Denial?

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Apple (AAPL) was denied a sales ban on older Samsung (SSNLF) smartphones Wednesday after requesting more limited terms, according to Bloomberg.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh denied Apple's request for a ban on older smartphones from its South Korean competitor. The ruling comes after a May ruling that both Apple and Samsung were found to infringe on the other's patents.

In its argument Apple focused on infringing features of nine older Samsung devices and offered to give the company a chance to design ways around infringement.

Shares of Apple were gaining 1.1% to $101.97.
