Since Judge Holderman’s September 27, 2013 order setting a RAND rate in the sprawling Innovatio WiFi litigation (see our October 3 post), two of the five major device manufacturers involved in the case have settled-out.  Motorola settled with Innovatio after a November 22nd settlement conference and was dismissed on December 17th.  Less than a week later, SonicWall was dismissed based on a settlement agreement.  The remaining manufacturers, Cisco, Netgear, and HP, continue to defend against Innovatio’s infringement claims along with the plethora of wireless-network-user defendants, including various coffee shops, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, large retailers, and transportation companies.  A status hearing before Magistrate Judge Schenkier has been scheduled for January 9, 2014.
