On October 1, 2021, Sonrai Memory Limited (“Plaintiff” or “Sonrai”), represented by Reza Mirzaie of Russ August & Kabat, filed an intellectual property lawsuit against Google LLC (“Defendant” or “Google”), seeking injunctive relief, supplemental damages, costs, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest and other relief for the alleged infringement of the United States Patent owned by Plaintiff. This case was filed in the United States District Court in the Western District of Texas.
This complaint arises from Defendants’ alleged unlawful infringement of the United States patent owned by Plaintiff which relates to improvements in electronic circuitry in computing devices and processors: United States Patent Nos. 8,193,792 entitled “Circuit and method for operating a circuit” (“’792 Patent” or the “Asserted Patent”).
In the complaint, Plaintiff alleged that, “On information and belief, Defendant makes, uses, offers for sale, sells, and/or imports certain products and services, including without limitation servers and services utilizing Intel processors with Fully Integrated Voltage Regulators (e.g., Google Cloud and associated servers) (“Accused Instrumentalities”), that directly infringe, literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, one or more claims of the ’792 Patent.”
Plaintiff also alleged that, “Defendant also knowingly and intentionally induces infringement of one or more claims of the ’792 Patent in violation of 35 U.S.C. § 271 (b). Through the filing and service of this Complaint, Defendant has had knowledge of the ’792 Patent and the infringing nature of the Accused Instrumentalities. Despite this knowledge of the ’792 Patent, Defendant continues to actively encourage and instruct its customers and end users (for example, through user manuals and online instruction materials on its website) to use the Accused Instrumentalities in ways that directly infringe the ’792 Patent.”
Further, Plaintiff alleged that, “Defendant does so knowing and intending that its customers and end users will commit these infringing acts. Defendant also continues to make, use, offer for sale, sell, and/or import the Accused Instrumentalities, despite its knowledge of the ’792 Patent, thereby specifically intending for and inducing its customers to infringe the ’792 Patent through the customers’ normal and customary use of the Accused Instrumentalities.”
There is one claim for relief laid down by Plaintiff for the alleged infringement of the Asserted Patent.
In the prayer for relief, Plaintiff has requested the court to pass a judgment in favor of Plaintiff that Google has infringed, either literally and/or under the doctrine of equivalents, the ’792 Patent along with an award of permanent injunctive relief and damages, costs, expenses, and pre-judgment and post-judgment interest including supplemental damages without limitation. Further, Plaintiff requested the court for a judgment and order finding this an exceptional case within the meaning of 35 U.S.C. § 285 and attorneys’ fees and costs and further relief as the court may deem just and proper.
