Core Optical Sues ADVA and Cisco, as Court Weighs Marking Challenges in Earlier Suits

August 9, 2020

In early July, Judge A. Kronstadt of the Central District of California took under submission multiple early motions, filed separately by Juniper Networks and Nokia, in cases brought against them by inventor-controlled Core Optical Technologies, LLC in November 2019. Among other things, each defendant moved to dismiss the complaint against it for failure to plead satisfaction of the marking requirements under Section 287 by prior licensees Fujitsu, Ciena, and Infinera. As the parties await Judge Kronstadt’s rulings, Core Optical has filed two new cases in the same district, one each against ADVA Optical Networking (8:20-cv-01463) and Cisco (8:20-cv-01468).
