Mesa Digital and OAC Hit Zebra Technologies and Microsoft, Respectively, in Different Wings of the Same Campaign

December 21, 2019

One of the longest running litigation campaigns continued its sprawl past the decade mark in December, with Mesa Digital LLC filing suit against Zebra Technologies (1:19-cv-08217) and sibling entity Ortiz & Associates Consulting, LLC (OAC) hitting Microsoft (1:19-cv-08262), both in the Northern District of Illinois. The new Mesa Digital complaint accuses Zebra Technologies of infringing a single patent, generally related to a “multimedia” mobile device, through the provision of the TC8000, a mobile bar-code-scanning device, targeting its alleged support of cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth networking as well as its touchscreen user interface; Microsoft is accused of infringing a second patent from the same family through the provision of the Miracast Service, a wireless mirroring display standard, this asserted patent broadly concerning the transmission of video data from a wireless device to a “data rendering device”.
