After roughly a year hiatus, Alert Signal Intellectual Property, LLC (Alert Signal IP) has revived its sole litigation campaign, filing suit in the Western District of Texas against Alphabet (Google) (6:20-cv-00644) over four patents generally related to managing alerts based on a device’s velocity. Alert Signal IP targets the provision of certain Pixel series smartphones, with features for prioritizing or disabling notifications in different environments (e.g., while driving). The case against the most recent defendant, Apple, which saw the same four patents asserted, ended in an April 2019 dismissal with prejudice shortly after an unopposed transfer from the Eastern District of Texas to the Northern District of California.
