After Brief Break, Seven Networks Resumes Litigation

March 12, 2021

Seven Networks LLC’s campaign respite, triggered by a December 2020 settlement with Apple, has proven brief, as last week litigation resumed, the plaintiff accusing LG Electronics (LGE) (2:21-cv-00088) of infringing eight patents in a new Eastern District of Texas complaint. Various LGE smartphones and tablets are targeted, with the new case initially assigned to District Judge Rodney Gilstrap. Judge Gilstrap presided over the Apple case, as well as prior litigation against Alphabet (Google), Samsung, and ZTE, the last only briefly, before it was transferred to District Judge Barbara M.G. Lynn of the Northern District of Texas. Each of those previous suits also ended in apparent settlement.
