Samung has failed in its attempt to have the temporary ban on its Galaxy 10.1 tablet lifted.

It was reported last week that Apple won its patent case against the company, which led to the temporary ban being imposed on the device and prohibiting its sale within the US.

Samsung is posed to launch an appeal against the ban on July 30th, however, the company requested for the ban to be lifted until the on-going battle between itself and Apple was resolved.

However, the request was denied by US District Judge Lucy Koh and the ban on the tablet remains.

Apple's case against Samsung and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 involves the device's supposed infringement of the design and styling of the iPad and iPad 2.

Whilst the Tab 10.1 remains banned, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has been protected from the patent case after undergoing extensive styling changes from the original device.
