Samsung won’t be able to delay the proceedings in a lawsuit filed against it by Microsoft in New York, U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff has confirmed. Microsoft’s lawsuit against the Korean manufacturer accused it of not paying royalty payments that it owes to Microsoft as a result of using Android, but Samsung believed it didn’t owe Microsoft anything since the latter purchased Nokia. In order to hold the lawsuit, Samsung initiated an arbitration proceeding against Microsoft in Hong Kong, but the U.S. court has ruled that the original lawsuit will continue as planned.

Samsung hasn’t offered an official response to the court’s decision yet, though it’s likely the company is not pleased. Microsoft, on the other hand, simply says that it is “pleased that the court agrees that New York is the appropriate venue for this dispute.”
