Texas NPE Begins Litigating Zeidman Patents

May 5, 2022

ZT IP, LLC has initiated its first litigation over patents received from Zeidman Technologies this past March, suing VMware (3:22-cv-00970) in the Northern District of Texas and MathWorks (6:22-cv-00438) and National Instruments (6:22-cv-00437) in the Western District of Texas. At issue across the new complaints are virtualization products (VMware) and products related to task management and code generation for real-time operating systems (the others). The VMWare suit was filed in the Northern District of Texas, where local rules require filing parties to identify “a complete list of all persons, associations of persons, firms, partnerships, corporations, guarantors, insurers, affiliates, parent or subsidiary corporations, or other legal entities that are financially interested in the outcome of the case”. ZT IP, a plaintiff with ties to Dynamic IP Deals, LLC (d/b/a DynaIP), for which an individual connected to a venture capital firm has signed, has yet to file its disclosure.
