From the Invention Summary of the patent: "The present invention comproses a grid of tiles that reside on the user's desktop"

WP7 was on phones only. Windows 8 resides "on the user's desktop."

They were actually quite forward thinking and mentioned the use on multiple devices including handheld devices. If I had to guess, though, WP7 was not multi-device compatible and Windows 8 is - here's your lawsuit!
