ACQIS Appeals Noninfringement Ruling in Massachusetts, Sues Acer in Texas

July 24, 2021

ACQIS LLC has expanded its sole litigation campaign, begun in 2009, with a new case against Acer (2:21-cv-00275) in the Eastern District of Texas. Cases from a round filed last fall—against ASUSTek, Inventec, Lenovo, MiTAC, Samsung, and Wistron—remain in early stages, while a prior suit, filed against Dell (EMC) in the Eastern District of Texas but transferred to the District of Massachusetts, was just dismissed, District Judge Allison D. Burroughs granting EMC’s motion for summary judgment of noninfringement of all claims from eight asserted patents. The court did so principally because the accused products do not comply with the PCI Local Bus Specification, as Judge Burroughs ruled is required under the court’s construction of a key claim term.
