Apple vs. Samsung trial: Closing arguments delayed in patent case

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- A federal court has delayed by a day closing arguments in the Apple and Samsung trial because of an appeals court ruling in another case on a related patent issue.

Dueling expert witnesses will be called back to the stand Monday in a San Jose, California, federal courtroom to discuss whether the ruling in a legal dispute between Apple and Motorola has any effect on the Apple and Samsung trial.

Lawyers will now deliver closing arguments Tuesday.

The Federal U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington D.C. on Friday upheld a federal judge's legal definition of Apple's so-called "quick links" patent at issue in the dispute between Apple and Motorola.

Apple accuses Samsung of infringing the patent, which allows users to send phone numbers directly to a device's dialer.
