Apple seeks Samsung Galaxy S3 temporary sales ban in US
Apple has sought to disrupt the US launch of Samsung Electronic's flagship smartphone by asking a court to ban the product from sale temporarily.
The iPhone-maker claimed the Galaxy S3 infringed at least two of its patents based on its analysis of a model bought in the UK.
Samsung denied the accusation, saying the launch would proceed as planned.
The two firms have been embroiled in dozens of patent and design disputes over the past year.
A judge ordered the chief executives of both to meet in San Francisco and discuss settling their legal differences last month, but the talks did not lead to a settlement.
Since the meeting, Apple has also sought to ban sales of one of Samsung's tablet computers.
