Second Jury Hearing SimpleAir Infringement Allegations Sides with Google

  • October 15, 2015

On October 12, 2015, a jury in the Eastern District of Texas returned a non-infringement verdict in favor of Google in the latest of a long string of cases filed by SimpleAir, Inc. The NPE filed the case (2:14-cv-00011) in January 2014, asserting two patents (8,572,279, 8,601,154) from a family of eight that it characterizes as its “data transmission” patents. The patents generally relate to the processing and transmission of notification data to a remote computing device, and the case focused on push notifications sent by certain Google services to Android devices. SimpleAir dropped the ’154 patent on the eve of trial; therefore, the jury only heard disputes related to the ‘279 patent, finding the asserted claims not infringed but also not invalid.
