e.Digital Corp. filed a lawsuit Jan. 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California District Court, San Francisco Division against the Palo Alto-based corporation.
According to the claim, U.S. Patent No. 9,002,331 and 9,178,983, titled System and Method for Managing Mobile Communications, were issued to Patrick Nunally and e.Digital is the assignee and owner of the entire right, title and interest of both.
