Rothschild Sues Wireless Carriers over Visual Mapping Patents Acquired from IV

August 8, 2017

Leigh M. Rothschild’s Location Based Services, LLC (LBS) has added AT&T, SOFTBANK (Sprint), and Verizon (Cellco) to its litigation campaign begun in February of this year. The new complaints, like their earlier counterparts, assert various combinations of a group of seven related patents acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV); at issue are the wireless carriers’ GPS navigation apps and related devices. LBS’s latest suits follow the recent transfer of its cases against Garmin and Niantic from the Eastern District of Texas to the Northern District of California, and May dismissals of MiTAC and RM Acquisitions d/b/a Rand McNally.
