Samsung had endured a ban of sales to their GALAXY Tab 10.1 thanks to Apple and their ongoing patent war with the Korean company, but Samsung requested to lift the ban on the tablet, but were rejected by U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh.

There is a planned patent trial this month, but the rejection of Samsung's request to lift the sales ban is yet another bang against Apple's victorious patent trolling drum. Samsung have said in a statement:

Samsung is disappointed with the court's decision that denied our motion to stay. We believe today's ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior technological features to consumers in the United States.

The next time the two tablet-making companies head into court is later this month, on July 30. The news from that court room should be quite interesting, and we'll report on that when it happens.
