Bright House and Two Accused Product Suppliers File Separate Delaware DJ Actions Against MTel
- April 21, 2016
Each of three plaintiffs has filed a complaint in Delaware seeking declaratory judgments of non-infringement of several wireless communications patents (5,590,403; 5,659,891; 5,915,210) owned by Mobile Telecommunications Technologies, LLC (MTel). ARRIS (1:16-cv-00259) and Ubee Interactive (1:16-cv-00260) both allege jurisdiction based on MTel’s accusations in separate lawsuits, filed roughly three months ago in Texas, against Bright House Networks, Charter, Cox, and Time Warner Cable, all of which are customers of the two declaratory judgment plaintiffs’ 802.11 standard compliant products. On March 18, 2016, Bright House filed a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction in Texas, one month later filing its own declaratory judgment action (1:16-cv-00277) against MTel in Delaware.
