Reexamination Requests against MobileMedia and Round Rock among those Filed Week of September 19, 2011

Scott Daniels | September 26, 2011

Last week saw a request filed by RIM against a MobileMedia patent, one of a number of mobile phone patents currently being litigated by the companies in the Eastern District of Texas (see ex parte Request No. (13)).  The MobileMedia patent, like several of those patents-in-suit, was originally assigned to Nokia

An unnamed party filed a request against a Round Rock Research patent for electronic tracking (see ex parte Request No. (12)). 

And CareFusion filed two requests against Vesta Medical patents for medical waste disposal systems (see ex parte Request Nos. (10) & (11)).  CareFusion set a record, we think, in August when it requested reexamination of 27 Vesta patents.
