University “Engagement Center” Files New Suit in Campaign Halted Elsewhere by a Late-Stage Stay

March 10, 2021

Just after a January 2021 stay halted its Eastern District of Texas litigation against Cisco, Ramot at Tel Aviv University Ltd., the “Business Engagement Center” of Tel Aviv University, has filed a Delaware suit over two of the same three patents, this time against Acacia Communications (1:21-cv-00295). The patents generally relate to converting digital electric data into modulated optical streams, with Acacia accused of infringement through the provision of certain optical transceiver modules and DSP chips. District Judge Rodney Gilstrap imposed the stay, at the relative eleventh hour ahead of a March 1 trial date, in light of ex parte reexaminations of the patents-in-suit—the first of three recent cases to see action stopped via the same mechanism.
