CNBC's Josh Lipton reports from San Francisco on the United States trade judge ruling that recommends Qualcomm be granted a request for an import ban on some iPhones. An administrative law judge of the U.S. International Trade Commission said the basis for the ban was a finding that Apple infringed a Qualcomm patent relating to smartphone technology. The judge's initial determination is not binding and will be reviewed by the agency.
