Apple Inc. lost a request for a court order in its bid to block sales of Samsung Electronics Co.’s 4G smartphone and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer, according to a ruling that was posted on a court docket and then removed.

The iPad maker, in its lawsuit filed in federal court in San Jose, California, sought an order blocking Samsung from selling its Galaxy line of mobile devices products in the U.S. based on claims they violate Apple patents. The lawsuit is part of a legal battle between the companies being fought in 10 countries.

The two companies have filed at least 30 lawsuits against each other, according to Samsung. The conflict began in April, when Apple filed the San Jose lawsuit claiming the Suwon, South Korean company’s Galaxy devices copied the iPhone and iPad.

According to the court docket, the ruling, which was posted temporarily in error late yesterday, was later filed under seal.

The suits are made more complex by the companies’ relationship: Samsung is the second-largest component supplier for Apple and gets about 7.6 percent of its total revenue from selling memory chips, displays and other components for the iPhone and iPad, according to Bloomberg data.

The case is Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co., 11- 01846, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).
