At November’s end, apparent IP Edge LLC plaintiff Aperture Net LLC added two cases to its sole litigation campaign over a single former Linex Technologies, Inc. patent generally related to spread-spectrum wireless transmission. Aperture Net has asserted that same patent in roughly 60 complaints, filed in multiple districts, since September 2019, including one filed in the Northern District of Texas in April 2021. That district imposes heightened disclosure requirements on litigants, in response to which, in a document signed by Papool S. Chaudhari of PRA Law, Aperture Net certified that 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” is one name long, disclosing only Aperture Net itself. Franklin Wireless (3:22-cv-01885) and Moxa (Moxa Americas) (8:22-cv-02143) are the newest defendants in this campaign, the latter sued in the Central District of California, which also imposes heightened disclosure by local rule. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the “Series of Extraordinary Events” underway before Delaware Chief Judge Colm F. Connolly, Aperture Net has quickly amended its initial Certification and Notice of Interested Parties in connection with the Moxa Americas case.
