Dominion’s Vista Peak Sues HannStar and Truly Semiconductors, Settles with Japan Display

August 13, 2020

On the heels of new sets of suits filed against HannStar (2:20-cv-00250, 2:20-cv-00251, 2:20-cv-00252) and Truly International Holdings (Truly Semiconductors) (2:20-cv-00254, 2:20-cv-00255, 2:20-cv-00256) in the Eastern District of Texas, that venue has seen the last 2019 suits of Vista Peak Ventures LLC (VPV), against Japan Display, dismissed with prejudice in light of a settlement. VPV has been targeting TFT-LCD (thin-film transistor – liquid crystal display) panels throughout this campaign, hitting HannStar over the manufacture and sale of TFT-LCD panels incorporated into GPS devices and bridge terminals of TomTom and satellite radios of SiriusXM and hitting Truly Semiconductors over panels that are incorporated into GPS devices manufactured by Garmin. VPV, a subsidiary of Texas monetization firm Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC, began asserting assets from its portfolio of former NEC patents in July 2018, roughly five months after receiving them from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV).
