IV Hits HP Enterprise in Long-Running Litigation Campaign

March 12, 2021

Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV)—through Intellectual Ventures I LLC and Intellectual Ventures II LLC—has filed suit against HP Enterprise (HPE) (6:21-cv-00226) over the provision of various products related to enterprise data storage, virtualization, and wireless networking. The new case keeps alive litigation in a campaign that began in May 2013 but appeared to draw to a district court close in January 2021, after dismissals with prejudice ended separate suits against Arista Networks and Dell (VMWare). A Federal Circuit appeal remains active, filed by Dell (EMC), Lenovo, and NetApp following a grant of summary judgment of noninfringement in the District of Massachusetts.
