In front of Justice Annabelle Bennett, Barrister Catterns stated “Our counter claim will include a cross claim of infringement for a number of Samsung patents that have been infringed by Apple's iPad & iPhone.

Samsung was earlier sued by Apple, after later felt that the device maker was infringing on quite a few patents in Galaxy Tab 10.1, the latest tablet pc being released by Samsung in Australia. Both of the gadget makers had approved to an activity where Samsung will delay its shipment and Apple will study Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 before the proposed release date for possible patent infringements. As per Samsung, Apple’s assertions are baseless, since the claims are being based on the US model of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet.
