Sable Networks Files Second Case Against Fortinet in the Eastern District of Texas

December 14, 2020

Earlier this year, SableNetworks, Inc. (as patent owner) and Sable IP, LLC (as exclusive licensee) initiated its sole litigation campaign, filing seven networking suits in either the Eastern or Western District of Texas since. One of those East Texas defendants, Fortinet, filed a motion to transfer the case against it to the Northern District of California, the “home” of both Fortinet and Sable Networks. The deadline to respond to that motion has been twice extended, pushing the deadline to December 23. Last week, however, Sable filed a second suit against Fortinet in the Eastern District of Texas, this time together with Berkshire Partners (Masergy Communications) (5:20-cv-00196), Masergy alleged to be a Delaware corporation with “principal place of business” in Plano, Texas.
