Amid Multiple Appeals, Traxcell Hits Verizon Again, This Time Focusing on Apple Maps

January 9, 2021

Traxcell Technologies, LLC has filed a second suit against Verizon (Verizon Wireless Personal Communications) (6:20-cv-01175), this one in the Western District of Texas. Five patents, four new to this campaign, all generally related to locating a wireless device and “then using the location for other applications, such as for improving communications” with the device, are asserted in the new complaint, which again targets certain location-based services, including self-organizing network (SON) technology (e.g., the complaint identifying solutions allegedly provided by Ericsson) and navigation products (e.g., identifying Apple Maps this time, rather than Google Maps). This second case comes during Traxcell’s appeals of multiple claim construction and noninfringement rulings from the Eastern District of Texas that have halted the plaintiff’s remaining cases there.
