U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, has rejected last Tuesday Samsung’s request to lift a pre-trial injunction that would prohibit sales of Galaxy Nexus smartphone in the country. This comes after Judge Koh granted last week Apple’s request to block the sales of Samsung’s Android smartphone.

The judge also rejected a similar request to lift the ban on selling Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the United States. But Samsung is not giving up just yet, as it has also appealed to a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., which has exclusive jurisdiction over intellectual property disputes.

Because of the injunction, Samsung and Google (developer of the phone’s Android OS) will have to find a workaround to sell their Galaxy Nexus to eager Americans. Sources say that a software patch will be implemented “imminently” to avoid patent infringements from Apple. Also, the phone is currently listed in Google Play store as “coming soon,” just in case the software update would make the Galaxy Nexus clear of any legal issues.
