Samsung has sued the Australian patent commissioner, and by extension the Federal Government, in an attempt to force a review of patents key to its ongoing, high-profile battle with smartphone rival Apple.
The South Korean manufacturer has battled Apple in Australian courts for nearly a year over attempts to block both companies' competing products from sale.
In the latest move, however, Samsung filed a statement of claim in the Federal Court on May 22 seeking a judicial review of four patents it claimed were inappropriately granted to Apple between 2009 and 2010.
