In early July, Vista Peak Ventures, LLC, an affiliate of Dominion Harbor Enterprises, LLC, filed its first cases asserting patents from a large portfolio of former NEC patents that it acquired from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV) earlier in 2018. The plaintiff targeted flat panel displays sold by either AU Optronics or Innolux, both Taiwanese manufacturers, in multiple suits filed in the Eastern District of Texas. AU Optronics has responded with a Northern District of California complaint (3:18-cv-04638) filed by AU Optronics Corporation America (AUO USA), contending that Vista Peak identified California entity AUO USA as having committed acts of infringement while naming the Chinese parent company as the suit’s defendant to “manufacture personal jurisdiction” in Texas.
