Google Request for Reexamination of Walker Digital Patent, among those Filed Week of June 25, 2012

Scott Daniels | July 2, 2012

Last year Walker Digital sued BMW, MapQuest, TomTom, Teleman, Blusens, NDrive, Samsung and Google for infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,199,014 claiming a vehicle navigation system (see inter partes Request No. (2)).  Last Tuesday Google requested reexamination of the ‘014 patent.  A motion to stay the litigation is likely to follow.

Reexamination was requested for Ronald Katz’ U.S. Patent No. 5,898,762 claiming a telephone interface system (see ex parte Request No. (2)).  Katz has sued Charter, Time Warner Cable, EarthLink, DIRECTV and U.S. Cellular for infringing the ‘762 patent.
