Rothschild Revives Wireless Charging Campaign

February 22, 2024

Following the dismissal of its last active case in June 2020, Electronic Edison Transmission Technologies, LLC—an entity associated with prolific inventor and frequent plaintiff Leigh M. Rothschild—has revived its sole litigation campaign with a suit against Samsung (2:24-cv-00105) in the Eastern District of Texas. The plaintiff asserts three patents, two of which are newly asserted in litigation, generally related to power transmission between devices. Samsung is accused of infringement through the provision of devices (e.g., smartphones and smart watches) that support the Wireless PowerShare or Reverse Charging features, both of which are alleged to be compliant with the Qi wireless charging standard.
