After Samsung’s April Exit, Nordic Interactive’s Campaign Hits LG Electronics

May 6, 2021

Longhorn IP LLC plaintiff Nordic Interactive Technologies LLC has filed a second lawsuit in the litigation campaign begun in January 2020 with a Western District of Texas case against Samsung. The parties ended that dispute—both in district court and before the PTAB—in mid-April 2021, after claim construction and amid a contentious change of plaintiff counsel. Roughly two weeks later, Nordic Interactive hit LG Electronics (LGE) (6:21-cv-00438), also in West Texas, with the same two patents. The plaintiff again targets with one patent certain Android and Chrome devices that incorporate “the Bluetooth 2.1 or later version standard using Extended Inquiry Response” or Android devices that support Wi-Fi Direct; and with the other, devices “running Android Mobile Operating System supporting telephony functionalities”.
