In Monument Peak Ventures Campaign, Xerox Settles, Acer Answers, and Vivint Newly Sued

June 17, 2022

A joint motion to stay and notice of settlement has stopped activity in the case filed in September 2021 by Monument Peak Ventures, LLC (MPV) against Xerox in the Eastern District of Texas. MPV has now sued Vivint (6:22-cv-00635) in the Western District of Texas, where a February 2022 case against Acer remains active and headed toward an October claim construction hearing. Since March 2018, the plaintiff (across multiple campaigns, as a formal matter) has been asserting patents from a large portfolio of former Eastman Kodak patents, four of which are asserted in the newest complaint, against Vivint’s provision of certain surveillance cameras, smart home hubs, and related software products.
