Apple Faces 2nd SuitApple Faces 2nd Suit

Fresh off a $532.9m jury win against Apple Inc, a Texas company is again suing the tech giant, this time over the same patents’ use in devices introduced after the original case was underway, Reuters said. Smartflash LLC aims to make Apple pay for using the patent licensing firm’s technology without permission in devices not be included in the previous case, such as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and the iPad Air 2. The trial covered older Apple devices. The new complaint was filed on Wednesday night in the same court in Tyler, where Smartflash is also based and which over the past decade has become a focus for patent litigation.
