Local Intelligence, LLC, an affiliate of Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC, has added a third case to the litigation campaign that it began last fall. The NPE filed suit against LG Electronics (LGE) (1:18-cv-00271), asserting two of the three patents already at issue. Those patents generally relate to updating a phone’s display with a location-specific “communication service”. Local Intelligence asserted all three in an Eastern District of Texas suit against Samsung in late October and in a Northern District of California case filed against HTC roughly one week later. Smartphones are the products accused of infringement throughout the campaign.

Local Intelligence, LLC, an affiliate of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC, has added a second case to the campaign that it began roughly ten days ago by filing suit against Samsung in the Eastern District of Texas. In the new complaint, filed in the Northern District of California, the NPE accuses HTC (3:17-cv-06437) of infringement through the provision of phones “released since December 2, 2014 with the Sense 7.0 or higher versions of HTC software, which includes Sense Home and/or Sense Companion features”. Local Intelligence identifies HTC One M9, HTC 10, and HTC U11 as examples of such phones.
RPXreported in early October the assignment of 15 patents from TP Lab, Inc. to Local Intelligence, LLC, an affiliate of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC. The NPE has now filed its first suit, targeting Galaxy S6, S7, and S8 smartphones made and sold by Samsung (2:17-cv-00716). Three related patents that broadly concern updating a phone’s display with a location-specific “communication service” are asserted, with the complaint’s allegations focusing on the use of navigation services (e.g., Google Maps), including the presentation of an edge display listing “My Places” for the user.
