Portal Communications, LLC, an affiliate of monetization firm Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC, has filed suit against Microsoft (2:18-cv-00140), accusing the company of infringing three patents generally related to returning search results responsive to both spoken prompts and location information. The accused products are “mobile phones, fitness devices, tablets, and/or other computing devices” that use Microsoft’s Cortana digital assistant for, among other things, “voice-searching”. This new case follows short-lived litigation of the same three patents, asserted against Apple in a case that was filed on March 8, 2018 and dismissed without prejudice five days later.
