May 2 (Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. won a jury’s finding of patent infringement by Samsung Electronics Co. in a $2 billion trial over smartphone technology, which may allow the iPhone maker to seek a judge’s order banning U.S. sales of its rival’s devices.

The eight-person jury, which heard almost four weeks of evidence in the companies’ second U.S. trial, is still announcing its verdict on other products in federal court in San Jose, California.
