Shipping & Transit Nearly Lets August Slip by Without Filing New Cases
- September 1, 2016
Shipping & Transit, LLC’s late August filings, against Comcast, DISH, and ten others, followed 46 new cases filed in June-July and bring the NPE’s defendant count to 166. Shipping & Transit’s litigation campaign was launched in April 2015 and is a revival of an earlier campaign, waged by ArrivalStar SA and Melvino Technologies Limited, that hit over 500 companies between 2002 and 2015. With these latest rounds of suits, Shipping & Transit holds strong as the second most prolific NPE so far in 2016, both by number of new cases filed and number of defendants sued.
