MESA DIGITAL, LLC v. Best Buy Co., Inc.

Case Summary

On October 5, 2021, Mesa Digital, LLC (“Mesa” or “Plaintiff”), represented by William P. Ramey, III of Ramey & Schwaller, LLP, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Best Buy Co., Inc. (“Best Buy” or Defendant”), seeking injunctive relief and damages along with prejudgment and post-judgment interests among other relief for the alleged infringement of the United States Patent owned by Plaintiff. The case was filed in the United State District Court in the Western District of Texas.

 

Plaintiff filed this complaint for the alleged infringement of the United States Patent No. 9,031,537 (“the ‘537 patent”) entitled “Electronic wireless hand held multimedia device” (referred to as the “Patent-in-Suit”) owned by the Plaintiff.

 

In the complaint, Plaintiff alleged that, “The ‘537 patent relates to a novel and improved electronic wireless hand held multimedia devices including a microprocessor and more than one wireless transceiver modules enabling wireless communications over a variety of standards” and “Defendant maintains, operates, manufactures, sells, offers for sale, and imports electronic wireless hand held multimedia devices including a microprocessor and more than one wireless transceiver modules enabling wireless communications over a variety of standards.”

 

Plaintiff further alleged that, “Defendant has and continues to induce infringement. Defendant has actively encouraged or instructed others (e.g., its customers and/or the customers of its related companies), and continues to do so, on how to use its products and services (e.g., discovering and presenting information in text content with different view formats) such as to cause infringement of one or more of claims 1–37 of the ‘537 patent, literally or under the doctrine of equivalents. Moreover, Defendant has known of the ‘537 patent and the technology underlying it from at least the date of the filing of the lawsuit.”

 

Plaintiff also alleged that, “Defendant has and continues to contributorily infringe. Defendant has actively encouraged or instructed others (e.g., its customers and/or the customers of its related companies), and continues to do so, on how to use its products and services (e.g., discovering and presenting information in text content with different view formats) and related services such as to cause infringement of one or more of claims 1–37 of the ‘537 patent, literally or under the doctrine of equivalents. Moreover, Defendant has known of the ‘537 patent and the technology underlying it from at least the date of the filing of the lawsuit” and “Defendant has caused and will continue to cause MESA damage by direct and indirect infringement of (including inducing infringement of) the claims of the ‘537 patent.”

 

There is one claim of relief laid down by Plaintiff for the alleged infringement of the Patent-in-suit.

 

In the prayer for relief, Plaintiff has requested the court for injunctive relief and an award of damages in an amount sufficient to compensate it for Defendant’s infringement of the ‘537 patent in an amount no less than a reasonable royalty or lost profits, together with prejudgment and post-judgment interest and costs under 35 U.S.C.§ 284, and accounting for acts of infringement along with treble damages, attorneys’ fees, expenses, and costs and any other relief the court deems just and proper.
