A second patent infringement lawsuit filed by Motorola Inc late on Thursday against Qualcomm Inc has been dismissed as largely duplicative and little more than bullying tactic by the Qualcomm. Motorola’s new complaint contends that Qualcomm’s wireless phone products infringes four Motorola patents – three of which were the subject of a Qualcomm suit original against Motorola filed in early March. Motorola’s filings appear to be an attempt to bully Qualcomm into renegotiating a long-standing contract and royalty arrangement despite the high value Motorola receives from our CDMA patents, said Steve Altman senior vice president and general counsel for Qualcomm. Motorola’s latest suit expands its original suit over patent infringements concerning Qualcomm’s cellular Q-phone. According to the Motorola, the latest suit is the result an on-going effort to examine all of Qualcomm’s recent It seeks to have Qualcomm permanently enjoined from further infringement of these patents and seeks damages for Qualcomm’s past infringement. Qualcomm, which filed a patent infringement suit against Motorola after the first suit was launched, has again dismissed Motorola’s claims. On April 24 this year Motorola’s request for a preliminary injunction barring Qualcomm from selling the Q Phone was denied by the federal court. In its opinion, the court found that Motorola had no likelihood of success on the merits of its claims of design patent and trade dress infringement.
