LG Notches Early Victory Against InterDigital in Patent Fight

An administrative law judge from the U.S. International Trade Commission today made an initial determination in a patent lawsuit that LG is facing from patent-holder InterDigital. In July 2011, InterDigital sued Nokia, Huawei, and ZTE over alleged violation of seven different patents. It asked the ITC to block the offenders from importing phones, USB laptop dongles, mobile hotspots, and tablets that operate with either 3G WCDMA or 3G CDMA technology into the country. InterDigital later added LG to this lawsuit. LG argued that it should be exempt from the lawsuit because it previously had a patent-licensing agreement in place with InterDigital concerning some of the patents in question. The ITC law judge today ruled that LG's motion to dismiss the lawsuit was valid based on the potential for arbitration between LG and InterDigital. The law judge's decision now needs to go before the full ITC commission before it is enacted upon. InterDigital said it will fight the decision. It also noted that the decision does not apply to its on-going litigation against Nokia, Huawei, and ZTE.
