Blitzsafe Texas Files New Wave, Making Its Campaign One of the Longest Running

May 21, 2021

Blitzsafe Texas, LLC and GM have filed a third request to stay the 2019 case between the two, indicating that an additional 14 days are required to “finalize the settlement documents with a third-party supplier”. In late April, Eastern District of Texas Judge Rodney Gilstrap granted the request indicating that the “Court does not anticipate further extensions”. A dismissal there will end Blitzsafe’s entire wave of 2019 cases, which included now-settled suits against PACCAR, Stellantis (Fiat Chrysler, Maserati), and Unigroup (Navistar). However, a fresh Blitzsafe wave—of cases filed against Aptiv (f/k/a Delphi) (2:21-cv-00160), Continental (2:21-cv-00161), EinCar Tech (2:21-cv-00162), JVC Kenwood (2:21-cv-00163), Marelli Europe (2:21-cv-00164), Namsung (2:21-cv-00165), Sony (2:21-cv-00166), and Zhejiang Geely (Volvo) (2:21-cv-00167)—will keep this campaign, which targets integration of mobile devices into in-vehicle infotainment systems, stretching into its second decade.
