We learned on Wednesday that Apple was denied a request to have certain Samsung devices banned from sale in the ongoing patent case between the two companies, and today The New York Times reports that Apple will appeal that decision.

A judge this week issued a decision denying a sales ban, and Apple on Friday said it would appeal the decision.

In the trial, which wrapped up in May, jurors concluded that Samsung should pay $119.6 million in damages for violating three of Apple’s patents — far below the $2 billion that Apple had asked for. Samsung’s Galaxy S III, a flagship smartphone, accounted for the biggest portion, contributing $52 million worth of the damages.

 Both Samsung and Apple agreed earlier this month to end all patent disputes outside of the United States, but as you can see that is not the case here.
