Fleet Connect Adds Case Against Somfy to Its Multifront Litigation over Patents Received from IV

July 2, 2024

Fleet Connect Solutions LLC (FCS), an Empire IP LLC plaintiff, continues to expand the campaign, begun back in December 2020 over a portfolio of patents acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), most recently suing Somfy (2:24-cv-00465) in the Eastern District of Texas over five of those assets. Targeted is the provision of “smart home hubs and ecosystems”, including the Somfy TaHoma Gateway and Somfy TaHoma Switch, that support certain features related to wireless communications, including 802.11n. FCS’s campaign is playing out in multiple venues across the country, several of which impose heightened disclosure requirements, in response to which FCS has repeatedly certified that no nonparties, including no persons, have a financial, pecuniary, or other interest in the outcome of its litigation.
