"Samsung Called for Emergency Hearing in Australia on Apple’s New iPad"On late Wednesday, Samsung called for the emergency hearing, after Apple’s new iPad was revealed. However, the details regarding what the South Korean Company plans to discuss are unknown, although the timing hints that Samsung may possibly be looking to block the March 16 launch of the iPad in Australia.

According to the reports, in the courtroom of Justice Annabelle Bennett the hearing is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. Friday local time. Interestingly, Justice Annabelle Bennett is the judge who had granted an injunction to Apple last year by temporarily barring sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Last October, immediately after the Cupertino Company unveiled its iPhone 4S, the South Korean electronics maker filed for injunctions in Italy and France trying to bar sales of Apple’s handset at launch. However those efforts by the Company have been failed and Apple’s international launch of the iPhone 4S rolled out without any legal issues.

On March 16th, next Friday – the Cupertino giant will be releasing its third-generation iPad in 10 countries, resulting as the largest roll out yet for the company. The new iPad (iPad 3 or iPad HD) is scheduled to launch in Australia together with the UK, U.S, Canada, France, Switzerland, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, and Singapore.

On the other hand, the South Korean company as well filed a new infringement suit against Apple regarding iPad 2 and iPhone 4S claiming that the products of infringing upon three patents. Samsung and Apple have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across the globe.

The iPhone maker has offered settlements to Samsung and Motorola, where in Apple has sought between $5 and $15 per Android-based handset sold, in return for dropping its own patent infringement claims, although no such agreement have been agreed.
