Omni MedSci, Inc. has filed a third case against Apple (4:20-cv-00563), targeting the Watch with a patent—generally related to measuring “physiological parameters” with a “wearable device” and a smartphone or tablet—that issued on December 31, 2019. Series 3 and Series 5 versions are accused of infringement. Omni MedSci filed the new case in the Northern District of California after its two prior cases were transferred there from the Eastern District of Texas. After transfer, Apple has sought to revisit denial of its Texas motion to dismiss, based on a challenge to Omni MedSci’s standing to bring suit in light of an employment agreement between sole named inventor, professor Mohammed N. Islam, and the University of Michigan.
