After PTAB, Alice, and Other District Court Setbacks, Arendi Files Second Case Against LG Electronics

November 7, 2020

Eight years after filing litigation against Apple, BlackBerry, HTC, LG Electronics (LGE), Motorola Mobility (then a Google subsidiary), Samsung, and Sony, Arendi S.A.R.L. asked Delaware District Judge Leonard P. Stark to set trial dates (“and potentially up to seven week-long trials four weeks apart beginning in the fall of 2021”). Last week, Judge Stark denied the motion, indicating that a date for a first trial, and perhaps a second trial, will be set once dispositive motions are resolved. Also, last week, in response to a separate order limiting the scope of accused products in its case against LGE, Arendi filed a new Delaware case against that defendant (1:20-cv-01483), asserting the same search patent against a long list of “mobile telecommunication devices, mobile phones, tablets, and other products” turned-away from the earlier suit.
