Essential is being sued over its modular accessory technology

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Essential Inc, created by Android co-founder Andy Rubin, launched its first smartphone earlier this year. The new company has already been subject to legal action, specifically from case manufacturer Spigen over its use for the 'Essential' brand name. Now it is being sued again, this time by Keyssa Inc, over the phone's connector for modular accessories.

If you're not familiar with the Essential Phone, it has a connector on the back for attaching modular accessories, like a specially-designed 360-degree camera.

Pokémon Go Fest attendees file lawsuit against Niantic

Friday, July 28th, 2017

Niantic's inability to make Pokémon Go work properly is becoming legend. Basically, if something can go wrong, it will go wrong. And there was a lot of wrong at the high-profile Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago last weekend. It was such a mess that a few dozen players have filed a class action lawsuit against Niantic, alleging false advertising.

The plaintiffs are demanding Niantic compensate them for travel to the festival, which was an unmitigated disaster.

LeSuit: Vizio sues LeEco for $100 million after failed buyout

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

LeEco has been nothing short of a dumpster fire for the past few months. Back in May, Jia Yueting stepped down as CEO after the company's botched attempt to enter the US market left LeEco strapped for cash. Not long after, Yueting's personal assets were frozen due to a missed loan payment. If you thought things couldn't get worse for LeEco, you were wrong.

Almost one year ago, LeEco announced that it would purchase all of Vizio's hardware and software businesses for $2 billion.

Qualcomm files suit against Apple, seeking import ban for infringing iProducts

Friday, July 7th, 2017

The Apple vs. Qualcomm drama has taken a turn for the dramatic. Today Qualcomm has fired back its own complaint against the ITC, and filed a suit in California, claiming that Apple is infringing on Qualcomm's patents and that an import ban on the infringing products is justified. The suit is only against products which use modems "other than those supplied by Qualcomm's affiliates," which, presumably, means the Intel modems that Apple has chosen to use in some models. 

Qualcomm claims that the six patents included in the suit are not part of any industry standard and that it is therefore not obliged to offer to license them as part of those standards.

One of the LG bootloop lawsuits has been forced into arbitration

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Representatives from Girard Gibbs LLP, the firm previously handling one of the LG bootloop lawsuits, contacted us late yesterday with news about the case. On June 29th the court gave an order granting the defendant's motion to compel arbitration, dismissing the lawsuit. That means that right now the suit has been forced into in arbitration. 

I know it's tough to follow, but so far there have been at least two of these lawsuits against LG.

Amended complaint filed in ongoing Nexus 6P early shutdown and bootloop lawsuit

Friday, May 26th, 2017

nexus2cee_6p-728x485

The Nexus 6P lawsuit we previously reported on twice in April has been recently amended, and the venue of the suit seems to have changed to northern California.  The latest filings have expanded the total number of actions in the suit from 10 to 23, with claimants hailing from 11 different states. It's still early days, and this more recent filing doesn't mean that the case has advanced, merely that the attorneys involved have decided to expand and tweak things after the initial filing.

Chimicles & Tikellis LLP, the law firm which was previously involved in a suit against LG for the Nexus 5X bootlooping problem, has filed a notice for voluntary dismissal of their case as of May 4th. Note that this is a different suit than the one by Girard Gibbs LLP that we reported on back in April, which (to our knowledge) is still ongoing.

Some of you that might have contacted the firm in the past to join the class might have received an email over the last week.
