US Judge, Lucy Koh, has moved to enjoin sales of Samsung's GALAXY Tab 10.1, granting Apple's request for a preliminary injunction. This isn't the first time Samsung has faced bans of their devices around the world, the same tablet was banned from sale in Australia last year.

In Europe, a German court banned the device, and forced the company to revise it and release the GALAXY Tab 10.1N. Judge Koh has taken a no-nonsense approach to the tactics of both Apple and Samsung, where at one point late last year, Koh held both the GALAXY Tab 10.1 and iPad over her head and asked both companies' lawyers to tell her which one was which.

The funny thing is that court correspondent Dan Levine said that it "took them a while to do so". More details of this ban as it hits.
