Multifold International Incorporated Pte. Ltd. v. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. et al

Case Summary

On September 29, 2021, Multifold International Incorporated Pte. Ltd. (“Plaintiff”). represented by Robert Christopher Bunt of Parker Bunt & Ainsworth, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (“SEC”) and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (“SEA”) (collectively, “Samsung'' or “Defendants”), seeking injunctive relief and damages along with prejudgment and post-judgement interests among other relief for the alleged infringement of the United States Patents owned by Plaintiff. This case was filed in the United States District Court in the Eastern District of Texas with Judge Rodney Gilstrap presiding.

 

Plaintiff filed this complaint for the alleged infringement of the United States Patent Nos. 8,836,842 (“the ‘842 Patent”), 8,881,053 (“the ‘053 Patent”), 9,134,756 (“the ‘756 Patent), 9,310,834 (“the Selim ‘834 Patent”), 8,854,834 (“the O’Connor ‘834 Patent”), 9,665,126 (“the ‘126 Patent”), 8,842,080 (“the ‘080 Patent”), 9,727,205 (“the ‘205 Patent”), 9,058,153 (“the ‘153 Patent”), 10,203,848 (“the ‘848 Patent”), 8,875,050 (“the ‘050 Patent”), 9,792,007 (“the ‘007 Patent”), 9,141,135 (“the ‘135 Patent”), 8,832,577 (“the ‘577 Patent”), 9,146,589 (“the ‘589 Patent”), 9,158,494 (“the ‘494 Patent”), and 9,195,335 (“the ‘335 Patent”) (collectively, “asserted patents” or “Patents-in-suit”) owned by Plaintiff.

 

In the complaint, Plaintiff alleged that, “Samsung, by itself and/or through its subsidiaries, agents, and/or business partners, has directly infringed, literally or under the doctrine of equivalents, claims of the ‘842 Patent pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 271(a) by making, having made, using, selling, offering for sale, and/or importing systems and methods protected thereby within the United States and within this district. Samsung has been engaged in direct infringement activities with respect to at least the Accused Products.”

 

Plaintiff also alleged that, “Samsung, by itself and/or through its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, and/or business partners, has induced the direct infringement of the ‘842 Patent by users of the Accused Products pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 271(b) in the United States and within this District.”

 

Plaintiff further alleged that, “Samsung, by itself and/or through its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, and/or business partners, has contributed to the direct infringement by users of the Accused Products of claims of the ‘842 Patent (including, without limitation, the claims addressed above) pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 271(c) in the United States and within this District at least by making, selling, offering to sell, and/or importing or exporting one or more components of the Accused Products used to practice one or more claims of the ‘842 Patent, that constitute a material part of the invention(s) claimed in the ‘842 Patent, and that have no substantial non-infringing use, with knowledge that such components are especially made or adapted for use in infringing the ‘842 Patent.”

 

Similar allegations have been made by Plaintiff with reference to the infringement of other Patents-in-suit. 

 

There are seventeen claims for relief laid down by Plaintiff, one for the infringement of each of the Patents-in-suit.

 

In the prayer for relief, Plaintiff has requested the court for permanent injunctive relief and declaratory relief along with an award for damages for the infringement of the Patents-in-suit along with treble damages and supplemental damages to MII, including interest, with an accounting, as needed, of all infringements and/or damages. Plaintiff also requested the court for supplemental damages, including interest, with an accounting, as needed, of all infringements and/or damages along with costs and attorney’s fees and any other relief the court deems just.
