On the heels of a settlement in a January 2021 case against Lexmark, K.Mizra LLC has filed a new complaint, this one asserting an overlapping set of former Sharp patents against HP (2:21-cv-00226). The plaintiff targets the provision of certain multifunction printers as well as toner cartridges. The lawsuit keeps K.Mizra’s number of active campaigns, waged either directly or through managed subsidiary Ginegar LLC, at four.
Ginegar LLC has filed its first lawsuits, accusing Oracle (6:21-cv-00134) and Slack (1:21-cv-00494) of infringing two separate sets of former IBMpatents that the NPE plaintiff received from Daedalus Blue LLC last year. In the first case, filed in the Western District of Texas, Ginegar targets Oracle’s VM Server for SPARC and Oracle Business Process Management (BPM) Suite, while accusing Slack of infringement through the provision of its “communication platform” in the other complaint, filed in the District of Colorado. Ginegar is managed by another NPE that has itself filed recent cases, one last November, against Cisco, and another just last month, against Lexmark.
