ParkerVision Hits Hisense as Prior Defendants Tussle over Infringement Contentions to Avoid “Trial by Ambush”

September 26, 2020

Backed by litigation funder Brickell Key and undeterred by a litigation storm in multiple districts, publicly traded ParkerVision, Inc. has sued Hisense (6:20-cv-00870) in the Western District of Texas over the provision of Sharp-branded TVs, with the incorporation of certain Wi-Fi chips provided by MediaTek and Realtek at issue. Core in this campaign is a 2014 case, active in the Middle District of Florida before Judge Paul G. Byron, against Qualcomm and its customer HTC, in light of which suits against Apple (also in the Middle District of Florida) and LG Electronics (LGE) (in the District of New Jersey) have been stayed. It does not stop there, however; 2020 cases against Intel (two in the Western District of Texas) and TCL (one in the Central District of California) continue, albeit in early stages.
