Delaware Ruling Sets the Table in Netlist’s Sprawling Memory Technology Litigation

This summer, Netlist ratcheted up its long-running memory technology campaign, filing new suits against Micron Technology (2:22-cv-00203, 2:22-cv-00294) and Samsung (2:22-cv-00293) in the Eastern District of Texas. Meanwhile, on August 1, 2022, Delaware District Judge Richard G. Andrews resolved a set of motions filed in connection with a declaratory judgment action that Samsung initiated against Netlist last October, a day after a California court ruled, among other things, that Samsung’s license to Netlist’s patents had been properly terminated. That ruling will also affect a 2009 case that Netlist filed against Alphabet (Google), as Samsung’s customer—litigation that came back to life after an extensive reexamination of the patent-in-suit concluded but was stayed again, in mid-July of this year, to await Judge Andrews’s ruling.
