Patent Filings Roundup: Fortress Gets Into the 5G SEP Game; Judge Gilstrap Stays Trial for Reexam After Board Denied Under Fintiv; Fintiv Case Transferred

By Jonathan Stroud
January 21, 2021

All eyes this week were on the USPTO Director’s chair and the inauguration, and yesterday the USPTO posted a farewell blog and speech, confirming that Andrei Iancu will (and probably already has) resigned pursuant to the changeover in administrations. But patent filings wait for no one, and so we turn to the just 20 Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) petitions that were filed last week, with the district court on usual pace with 68 complaints. Notably, there were another 10 discretionary denials (and 12 substantive ones), a few highlighted below, and a few developments in district court relevant to Fintiv in general.

It’s not on the below list, but it’s worth highlighting that Intel filed a Delaware Court of Chancery action against Fortress IP.  The documents themselves are just initial filings, but the upshot is that a 2012 license between Intel and Finjan (which was apparently global and would pass to any later-consolidated companies) now grants Intel a global license to all of Fortress IP’s controlled assets (including the contentious VLSI portfolio) per that company’s recent purchase of Finjan.  As an aside, it would be somewhat ironic if the Finjan purchase was in the end a poison pill that ended any number of the sprawling Softbank/Fortress IP-funded litigations. See Intel Corporation v. Fortress Investment Grp LLC, No. 2021-0021 (Del. C. Chancery filed Jan. 11, 2021).

Fintiv Itself Transferred, Trial Date Unclear: First, the original Fintiv case, still without trial date in sight, was itself transferred to the Western District of Texas from the Northern District of Texas by the magistrate there, joining a long and growing list of patent trials that are likely to be continually delayed moving forward.  See Fintiv, Inc. v. STMicroelectronics, No. 1:21-mc-00044 (WD Tex trans. Feb. 19, 2021) (originally sub nom. Fintiv, Inc. v. Apple, Inc.).

Judge Gilstrap Stays Cisco Case in Light of Reexam Where Board Denied PTAB Petitions: Eastern District of Texas Judge Rodney Gilstrap stayed the Cisco/Ramot at Tel Aviv suit on the eve of trial in light of three granted reexaminations, in just the latest chapter of a dispute that included a number of high-profile Fintiv denials due to trial dates that never materialized. That trial date had already been pushed back due to COVID, and was scheduled for March 1, but will now be even later; it’s now certain that the could-have-been inter partes reviews (IPRs) would have been resolved prior to any eventual trial.

Notably, Judge Gilstrap cited “a serious risk of wasted resources” in moving forward with trial over those challenges. The original suit, filed in June 2019, provoked two timely-filed IPRs that were all denied under Fintiv. The reexaminations were then filed AFTER those denials; no such discretionary rules apply in the reexam context, and the Office quickly moved forward with reexamination. The patents-in-suit are U.S. Patent Nos. 10,270,535, 10,033,465 and 10,461,866.

Amazon Petitions Denied over Fintiv Where Projected June Trial has 70+ Other Trials Ahead of It: Another head-scratcher from the Board on Fintiv: Amazon had petitions denied over a Western District of Texas projected trial date in June, despite a lengthy discussion of how that trial date would most likely move and would most likely not materialize. In particular, the Board noted:

[T]he Western District of Texas recently issued the “Tenth Supplemental Order Regarding Court Operations Under the Exigent Circumstances Created by the Covid-19 Pandemic,” on November 18, 2020, which continued all civil and criminal jury trials scheduled to begin between the dates of November 18, 2020 through December 31, 2020. …  Being the tenth of several orders to address the “exigent circumstances created by the Covid-19 pandemic” and “continued outbreak of novel coronavirus in the United States and the State of Texas,” we agree with Petitioner that these circumstances appear to fall within the category of “extreme situations” noted in Judge Albright’s guidance for moving trial dates.

…, we find reasonable Petitioner’s position that extending the trial dates of these cases [70+] into 2021 will likely have an impact on other cases, including patent cases  [25+] with later scheduled trial dates. Nonetheless, we also observe that the June 14, 2021 trial date remains undisturbed, and the degree of impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on this case is uncertain[, and thus] this factor weighs in favor of exercising our discretion to deny the Petition.

That decision, coupled with Judge Gilstrap’s recent stay of a trial in light of an instituted reexam (where the IPRs were denied for the very same trial date), and another Regeneron case denied in light of an International Trade Commission (ITC) proceeding, suggests Fintiv is creating more confusion and inefficiency than it has solved. Perhaps more tellingly, the Board denied other Amazon petitions against the same patent owner the same day on their merits, suggesting that perhaps this petition had merit enough to proceed, but for the Board’s Fintiv rules.
