The International Trade Commission said late Tuesday it would take a second look at an ITC judge’s decision that Samsung had infringed one Apple patent for a text-selection feature in its smartphones and tablets.
It will also look at the judge’s decision,made in March,that the South Korean company,which supplies some Apple chips,did not infringe a second patent which detects if a microphone or other device is plugged into its microphone jack.
A final decision is due on August 1.
The ITC is a popular venue for patent battles because it can ban imported goods from the United States if they are found to infringe patents.
Apple had filed a complaint in mid-2011,accusing Samsung of infringing its patents in making its Galaxy,Transform and Nexus mobile devices,among others.
The case at the International Trade Commission is No. 337-796.
