Shares in Samsung Electronics rose more than 3 percent on Tuesday after a U.S. judge set a December 6 court date to hear Apple Inc’s request for a permanent injunction against Samsung Electronics’ smartphones.  The move by the U.S. judge would possibly delay the potential impact of Apple’s legal victory. Samsung shares extended a rebound from the previous session, after dropping 7.5 percent on Monday following Apple’s comprehensive win in a US patent lawsuit.
