TCL Added to Ironworks Campaign as Huawei and LG Electronics Exit

March 30, 2018

Ironworks Patents LLC has filed suit against TCL Communication (TCT Mobile) (2:18-cv-02472) over three patents forming a subset of the five asserted in separate cases filed against LG Electronics (LGE) and Huawei last summer. The patents generally relate to the use of tactile alerts, audible alerts, and predictive text completion, with the accused products comprising various smartphones, including a range of Alcatel Idol models, Alcatel A30 and A50, the Alcatel Go Flip and Pop4S, and the BlackBerry KEYone. In January, the Ironworks case against LGE was dismissed with prejudice after earlier documents filed with the court suggest that the parties settled; a stay has been entered in the Huawei suit to facilitate settlement.
