Google Takes Steps to Move Texas Litigation Against Seven Networks to California

August 15, 2017

This past May, Seven Networks LLC (an apparent affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC) launched a litigation campaign, filing concurrent Eastern District of Texas suits against Alphabet (Google), Samsung, and ZTE. Within a few weeks, Seven Networks dismissed the complaint against ZTE, in favor of re-filing in the Northern District of Texas. Now, the NPE faces both a motion to dismiss (or, in the alternative, transfer) in the Google case and a new action (3:17-cv-04600), filed by Google in the Northern District of California, seeking declaratory judgments of non-infringement of the same ten mobile communications patents asserted against it in Texas.
