Japanese inventor Masakazu Ushijima filed a legal complaint against Korean-based technology company Samsung Electronics in a federal court in Austin, Texas on Wednesday, May 18. Ushijima claims that Samsung infringed on his patent rights with the liquid crystal display technology used in its laptop computers.
Ushijima previously sued Samsung for patent infringement and lost the case in 2015 before a Texas jury in the same court. However, Ushijima was successful in persuading United States District Judge Lee Yeakel to deny Samsung’s request for $3.5 million in attorney fees for the work of its legal counsel, Kevin Meek, head of Baker Botts’ intellectual property practice in Austin.
