Scramoge Technology LTD. v. Apple Inc.

Case Summary

On October 14, 2021, Scramoge Technology Limited (“Plaintiff” or “Scramoge”), represented by Reza Mirzaie of Russ August & Kabat, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Apple Inc. (“Defendant” or “Apple”), seeking damages along with pre- and post-judgement interest for the alleged infringement of United States Patents owned by Plaintiff. This case was filed in the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Texas.

 

Plaintiff filed this complaint for the alleged infringement of United States Patent No. 9,490,652 entitled “Wireless charger equipped with auxiliary power supply and auxiliary power device.” (“the ’652 Patent”) and 7,825,537 entitled “Inductive power transfer system and method.” (“the ’537 Patent”) (collectively, the “Asserted Patents”) owned by Plaintiff. 

 

In the complaint Plaintiff alleged that, “On information and belief, Apple makes, uses, offers for sale, sells, and/or imports certain products, including without limitation the MagSafe Battery Pack, that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, one or more claims of the ’652 Patent. Identification of the accused products will be provided in Plaintiff’s infringement contentions pursuant to the Court’s scheduling order. The Accused Products satisfy all claim limitations of one or more claims of the ’652 Patent. By making, using, offering for sale, selling and/or importing into the United States the Accused Products, Apple has injured Plaintiff and is liable for infringement of the ’652 Patent pursuant to 35 U.S.C. § 271(a).”

 

Plaintiff also alleged that, “On information and belief, Apple makes, uses, offers for sale, sells, and/or imports certain products, including without limitation the Apple MagSafe Charger, MagSafe Battery Pack, MagSafe Duo Charger, Apple Watch Magnetic Charging Dock, Apple Watch Magnetic Fast Charger to USB-C Cable, Apple Watches sold with a wireless charger (including but not limited to Apple Watch 1st Generation, Watch Series 1, Watch Series 2 and all Apple Wireless Chargers for the Apple Watch (including but not limited to any chargers sold with or as an accessory to the Apple Watch 1st Generation, Watch Series 1, Watch Series 2, Watch Series 3, Watch Series 4, Watch Series 5, Watch SE, Watch Series 6, and Watch Series 7) (“Accused Products”), that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, one or more claims of the ’537 Patent, including through Apple’s sale of infringing systems, own use, and/or testing of the Accused Products. Identification of the accused products will be provided in Plaintiff’s infringement contentions pursuant to the Court’s scheduling order. Apple also knowingly and intentionally induces infringement of one or more claims of the ’537 Patent in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271(b).”

 

There are two claims for relief laid down by Plaintiff which deals with the alleged infringement of the Asserted Patents owned by Plaintiff.

 

In its prayer for relief Plaintiff has requested the court for a judgment in favor of Plaintiff that Apple has infringed, either literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, the Asserted Patents, a judgment and order requiring Apple to pay Plaintiff its damages (past, present, and future), costs, expenses, and pre-judgment and post-judgment interest for Apple’s infringement of the Asserted Patents, and a judgment and an order finding that this is an exceptional case within the meaning of 35 U.S.C. § 285 and awarding to Plaintiff its reasonable attorneys’ fees against Apple.
