VIAVI and LG Innotek Settle Claims Regarding Optical Filter Patents

Viavi Solutions and LG Innotek have settled VIAVI’s complaints regarding its patented optical filters with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and with the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Pursuant to the agreement, VIAVI has withdrawn the lawsuits against LG Electronics. Further terms and conditions of the settlement are confidential and are not being disclosed.

The ITC and California complaints remain active and proceed forward with regard to defendant Optrontec. The complaints pursue claims that Optrontec has incorporated VIAVI’s patented optical filter design into their optical filters for use in high-end mobile phones and tablet computers featuring facial and gesture recognition technology. In the ITC, VIAVI continues to seek relief, including an exclusion order preventing Optrontec from importing infringing optical filters into the United States. In the California litigation, VIAVI seeks damages and injunctive relief, including a permanent injunction prohibiting Optrontec from importing infringing optical filters into the United States.

VIAVI reported the patent complaints in November 22, 2019 to initiate an investigation against LG Electronics, LG Electronics U.S.A., LG Innotek, and Optrontec.
