SAN JOSE, Calif. – A federal court on Monday delayed closing arguments by one day in the patent infringement trial involving Apple and Samsung because of an appeals court ruling in another case on a related issue.

In Silicon Valley, Apple is accusing Samsung of infringing the patent that automatically turns phone numbers and email addresses into links, enabling users to make calls and send messages with a single click.
