Sound View Innovations, LLC has added more cases to the campaign that it began back in 2016, suing Delta Air Lines (1:19-cv-00659) and Wal-Mart (1:19-cv-00660) over subsets of four and five patents, respectively, from the NPE’s large portfolio, most of which originated with Alcatel-Lucent. These new suits join early-stage cases filed against AMC Networks, CBS (CBS Interactive), HSN, Liberty Interactive (QVC), and The CW Network in January of this year. The Central District of California—in a 2017 case filed against Hulu—has been considering a storm of motions for several months, including multiple dispositive motions on various issues, among them noninfringement, failure to prove invalidity, and alleged willful infringement; motions to permit both fact and expert discovery after the deadline for completion; and motions attacking the proposed testimony of each party’s expert witnesses.
