This case is a transfer from the Eastern District of Michigan. Since 2005, VIPC has filed 11 prior suits over the same two patents against defendants including Apple, Google, and Samsung. The patents-in-suit were reaffirmed with minor amendments to the claims during ex parte reexaminations in 2010. The patents-in-suit were assigned to inventors, John Davidsohn and Anthony Cinotti, prior to being assigned to VIPC in June 1999. 11/17, Northern District of Georgia, 1:2011cv03960.
