Supreme Court ‘interested in Apple-Samsung dispute’

The US Supreme Court on Monday invited the acting solicitor general Jeffrey Wall to give his views on the $120 million patent infringement litigation between Apple and Samsung Electronics, Reuters reported.

Analysts said such a move sometimes indicates that the justices are interested in the case.

Samsung had asked the high court to review last October’s decision by the full US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

In that ruling the Circuit reinstated jury findings that some of Samsung’s mobile devices made before 2013 copied Apple’s autocorrect, slide-to-unlock, and “quick links” feature, which automatically turns information such as addresses and phone numbers into links, Reuters reported.
