The judge said that Apple were entitled to their opinion, but that they should run the ads to correct the impression that they had fostered that Samsung were guilty of blatant copying.
Looks like they have been let off the hook until after they lose their appeal:
They claim "irreparable harm" if they are forced to comply. It seems to me they are setting up a Samsung claim for damages for the irreparable harm to Samsung from the false allegations of copying.
