Smart Authentication IP, LLC (SAIP), a subsidiary of Monument Patent Holdings, LLC, has filed a case targeting the authentication used in financial planning software and apps of Personal Capital (1:17-cv-00941). The complaint asserts a single patent (8,082,213), which generally relates to multifactor authentication of users using separate communication channels. The new Eastern District of Texas suit follows dismissals in SAIP’s earlier waves of litigation there, apparently in light of the US Supreme Court’s TC Heartland decision on patent venue.
