The Apple v Samsung trial may now (finally) be over, but there's still the matter of Apple's attempts to get its rival's products banned based on that verdict to look forward to.
And everyone's favourite legal celeb Judge Lucy Koh has just announced the date for when those follow-up legal proceedings will take place: December 6.
That's quite a long way from the September scenario most of us were expecting, but while the two companies will indeed be appearing in court again on September 20, that will only be to decide whether to lift the existing ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 given the ruling that it doesn't infringe on Apple's design patents after all.
The big win for Apple, however, is in the smartphone department, and following the decision to award the company a huge $1bn in damages Apple now wants eight Samsung phones banned from sale altogether.
Having such a hearing take place only in December will largely draw the sting from whatever decision is actually reached on the matter, since Samsung will have had plenty of time to replace the affected handsets, many of which will be near end-of-life anyway.
That won't be the bitter rivals' only appearance in the courts over the next few months, either. For full details, check out the latest post-trial schedule (PDF).
