Late Monday Judge Lucy Koh lifted the temporary injunction she ordered in June forbidding Samsung to sell its Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the United States.
She said the jury that decided Samsung should pay Apple $1.05 billion for infringing its patents didn't find that it infringed the Apple D'889 design patent that the injunction was based on. "Thus, the sole basis for the June 26 preliminary injunction no longer exists."
The jury did find the Tab infringed two other Apple patents and Apple may get the jury's D'889 finding overturned after a hearing scheduled for December 6.
Apple has a list of Samsung phones including the flagship Galaxy S III it wants permanently enjoined.
Samsung wants the whole verdict thrown out and is claiming juror misconduct.
Meanwhile, Samsung has made good its threats and added the iPhone 5 to the Apple iPhones, iPads and iPods touch it claims infringe eight of its patents, two of them standards-essential patents. That case goes to trial in 2014.
