As I understand it, there is a much lower standard Apple has to meet to get an import injunction; the judge is supposed to assume the patent, however bogus, is proper and is just asked whether there is infringement. I suspect that this is why Apple is "manufacturing" (OK, assembling) their new tablet in the USA, so that Apple can't get an import injunction and would have to win at trial to get it shut down. But IANAL so anyone who knows these matters better, feel free to correct me.
