Cuozzo Speed Technologies filed eight new suits this month, tripling the number of patent assertion litigations initiated by the entity. A subsidiary of Empire IP, Cuozzo filed its first litigation in 2012 and these are its first new suits since that time. The cases are against Fujitsu, FullpowerTechnologies, MITAC, MotorolaMobility, Nokia, ReachUnlimited, Rand McNally, and Verizon, and each one asserts a single patent (6,778,074). The ‘074 patent, the only patent asserted in litigation by Cuozzo, relates to a GPS-based speed limit indicator. Defendants’ GPS navigation products that include a speed limit warning are accused of infringement. The patent-in-suit was subject to IPR proceedings filed in September 2012, and in November 2013 claims 10, 14, and 17 were cancelled. The remaining claims were not subject to IPR. 6/17, Eastern District of Texas, 4:14cv00393, 4:14cv00394, 4:14cv00395, 4:14cv00396, 4:14cv00397, 4:14cv00398, 4:14cv00399, 4:14cv00400
