Delaware Joins Texas as Venue for Deshodax’s Smartphone Camera Campaign

June 28, 2017

Another of IP Edge LLC’s litigation campaigns has stretched beyond the Eastern District of Texas. Deshodax LLC has moved for voluntary dismissal of its case against Lenovo (5:17-cv-00081) in that district, at roughly the same time that it has filed a new complaint against the same defendant (1:17-cv-00804) in Delaware, the state of incorporation of the named party, Lenovo (United States), Inc. Both Deshodax complaints assert a single patent (7,307,398) generally related to changing the operation of a “motor system” based on inputs received in an image processor. The accused products are the autofocus features in cameras built into the defendants’ smartphones. IP Edge, long a plaintiff fixture in Texas, has been forced by the US Supreme Court’s TC Heartland decision, to litigate in more varied climates over the past six weeks.
