(Reuters) – Qualcomm Inc on Tuesday lost a bid to have imports of some Apple Inc iPhones banned in a final and binding ruling on one dispute between the two companies by the full U.S. International Trade Commission.
Earlier in a separate but similar case, an administrative judge recommended an import ban on some iPhones, siding with Qualcomm. But that finding is not binding and must be reviewed by the agency.
