Apple is at it again, this time it has filed another suit in Germany, where they seek to ban sales of various Samsung smartphones, including the Galaxy S Plus and S II. The suit was filed in the Dusseldorf Regional Court, and is based from Apple design rights in Europe, according to a phone call Bloomberg had with court spokesman Peter Schuetz.

Apple didn't stop there, they've also launched a separate suit against five different Samsung tablet computer models related to a September ruling banning the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Last month, the Dusseldorf court said that it is unlikely to grant an injunction against the Galaxy 10.1N and an appeals court also gave doubts about the reach of Apple's European Union design right that won the company the injunction against the Galaxy 10.1.

 

The new suits aren't filed under emergency proceedings, and allow Apple a new procedure against both models. Apple did initially win with their successful September injunction, but have since then, hit roadblocks against Samsung. Back in December, Apple failed to convince an Australian court to reinstate a ban of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia.
