Undeterred by Multiple Setbacks, Atlas IP Keeps Smart Energy Grid Campaign Alive
- May 3, 2016
Despite multiple setbacks, Atlas IP, LLC has continued the second generation of its sole litigation campaign, which had targeted medical devices but has now moved on to smart energy grids. A single, expired, wireless communications patent (5,371,734) is at issue. The newest complaints name CenterPoint Energy (6:16-cv-00396) and Texas Energy Future Holdings (Oncor Electric Delivery) (6:16-cv-00397). Prior energy grid defendants include the City of Naperville, DTE Energy, Exelon, and PG&E, each of which was sued in the last couple of months of 2015.
