Lighthouse Consulting Group LLC has followed up its July case against Bank of America with August suits hitting CitiGroup (2:19-cv-00264) and Wells Fargo (2:19-cv-00269). Two patents—generally related to using an “image device” such as a “fax” or a scanner to capture and transmit images of checks and deposit slips to a bank—are asserted in all three complaints, with infringement allegations focused on mobile deposit features within the defendants’ banking apps. Lighthouse Consulting Group alleges that each defendant signed a separate nondisclosure agreement in 2007 under which the earliest applications in the asserted family of patents were discussed.
