Core Optical Technologies, LLC v. Acacia Communications, Inc.

Case Summary

On September 8, 2021, Core Optical Technologies, LLC (“Plaintiff” or “Core”), represented by Lawrence M. Hadley of Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen and Shapiro LLP filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Acacia Communications, Inc. (“Defendant” or “Acacia”), seeking monetary damages and such other relief for the alleged infringement of the United States Patent owned by the plaintiff. This case was filed in the United States District Court in the Central District of California.

 

This is an action for patent infringement by the defendant of the United States Patent No. 6,782,211, entitled “Cross Polarization Interface [sic] Canceler” (“the ’211 patent”) (“the Asserted Claims”).

 

In the complaint, the plaintiff alleged that, “Acacia has directly infringed the Asserted Claims of the ’211 Patent by performing all of the steps of those claims within the U.S., either itself, through intermediaries, or in conjunction with joint venturers and/or customers. Specifically, on information and belief, Acacia has performed all of the steps recited in each Asserted Claim, either personally, through intermediaries, or in conjunction with joint venturers and/or customers, by operating optical receiver systems incorporating the Accused Instrumentalities within the U.S. Such operation necessarily performs all of the steps recited in those claims.”

 

The plaintiff also alleged that, “Acacia actively induced infringement of the Asserted Claims by selling the Accused Instrumentalities to one or more customers in the U.S., along with documentation and instructions demonstrating how to use the devices as part of optical receiver systems to infringe the claims, and by providing service, maintenance, support, and other active assistance to its customers in using the Accused Instrumentalities in the United States.”

 

Further, the plaintiff alleged that, “Acacia has committed contributory infringement by selling, offering to sell and/or importing into the United States the Accused Instrumentalities. As shown in Paragraphs 16-21 supra, the Accused Instrumentalities constitute or contain a “DSP ASIC” which performs cross-polarization interference mitigation on polarization-multiplexed optical signals. A dual-polarization optical system that contains the “DSP ASIC” practices all the elements of, inter alia, claim 33.”

 

There are three claims for relief laid down by the plaintiff, one each for the infringement of the Asserted Patent.

 

In the prayer for relief, the plaintiff has requested the court to pass a judgment that Defendant has infringed the claims of the Asserted Patent along with an award of damages under 35 U.S.C. § 284. The plaintiff also requests further damages up to three times the amount assessed under 35 U.S.C. § 284. The plaintiff also requested the court to pass an award of enhanced damages and declare this an exceptional case within the meaning of 35 U.S.C. § 285, and provide attorneys’ fees, expenses, and costs incurred in this action and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper.
