Samsung fails to stop Caltech patent lawsuit over wireless chips

Caltech sued Samsung in a 2020 dispute over certain patents after winning a $1.1 billion California jury verdict against Apple and Broadcom. A US appeals court upheld the ruling last year and remanded for a new trial on damages.

The school’s 2021 lawsuit alleges that Samsung’s Galaxy phones, tablets, watches and Wi-Fi-enabled Samsung products such as TVs and refrigerators infringe on its data-transmission patents.

Caltech has sued Microsoft, Dell and HP separately over the patent. Samsung challenged its legality at the USPTO last year.

Samsung asked a Texas court to freeze Caltech’s case until the review was finished, arguing that the lawsuit was at an early stage and that the PTAB’s ruling would simplify the issues.

But Gilstrap said Friday that stalling the case “would do nothing more than buy time for the trial” and that he could not determine whether the PTAB’s challenges would simplify the trial because the board has not yet decided whether whether to listen to them or not.
