ChriMar Files More Suits in Texas as Cisco, HP, and HP Enterprise Seek Declaratory Judgments in Michigan
- November 22, 2017
ChriMar Systems, Inc. and ChriMar Holding Company, LLC (collectively, “ChriMar”) have filed two more Eastern District of Texas cases in their Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) campaign, one each against Johnson Controls (6:17-cv-00654) and Watchnet (6:17-cv-00657). The new complaints assert different subsets of ChriMar’s portfolio, targeting “PoE powered devices”, primarily networked cameras, that practice PoE standards. The newest patent to issue to ChriMar is asserted in both suits, and, as has become the practice each time ChriMar has asserted earlier, related patents throughout the campaign, HP and HP Enterprise (Aruba Networks) (2:17-cv-13784) and Cisco (2:17-cv-13770) have filed actions in the Eastern District of Michigan seeking declaratory judgments of noninfringement and unenforceability of the newly issued patent.
