TJTM Technologies LLC has sued Samsung (4:21-cv-05500) in the Northern District of California, targeting the “Car Mode” feature (f/k/a “Drive Mode”) on its Galaxy smartphones. The plaintiff asserts a single patent that SMTM Technology, LLC assigned to it this past May, SMTM having litigated the patent twice before, against Microsoft, briefly in 2015 and against Apple, first in 2018, then again in late 2019.
