In the wake of its recently announced leadership change, Acacia Research Corporation has revived yet another litigation campaign. Super Interconnect Technologies LLC (SIT), an Acacia affiliate, has filed suit against Alphabet (Google) (2:18-cv-00463) in the Eastern District of Texas; Huawei (2:18-cv-00462), Lenovo (1:18-cv-01729), Motorola Mobility (1:18-cv-01730), and Sony (1:18-cv-01731) in the District of Delaware; and ZTE (3:18-cv-02932) in the Northern District of Texas. SIT asserts three patents, generally related to communicating clock and data signals over a single clock transmission line, with mobile devices and laptops offering Universal Flash Storage (UFS) targeted across the campaign. In May 2016, a yearlong case against Samsung over the same three patents ended with a settlement during claim construction briefing.
