NPE Sues LG a Third Time, Again with Former Hitachi Patents

  • June 26, 2014

Mondis Technology sued LG, alleging the company’s televisions infringe a group of five patents. The patents-in-suit relate to image display and bi-directional communication with a video source or computer (6,513,088, 6,549,970, 7,089,342, 7,475,180, 6,639,588). Mondis has asserted all five patents in previous litigation, including a 2007 suit against LG, Hon Hai, and Innolux. That initial suit targeted LG’s computer monitors and Hon Hai’s and Innolux’s televisions. LG settled with Mondis and was dismissed in September 2009, but in June 2011 a jury found Hon Hai and Innolux guilty of infringement. Mondis sued LG a second time in January 2009, again accusing LG’s computer monitors of infringing ‘180, as well as another patent (7,475,181). That case ended in a dismissal two months later. Out of all the patents-in-suit, only the ‘088 patent originated with Mondis. The remaining patents were assigned to Mondis by Hitachi in October 2007. 6/24, Texas Eastern District Court, 2:14cv00702
