Mosaid sues Micron in ED Texas

A complaint by Mosaid against Micron, the biggest U.S. maker of memory chips, was filed July 27 in federal court in Marshall, Texas. Also sued were Powerchip Semiconductor Corp., Taiwan's largest memory-chip maker, and ProMOS Technologies, the country's third-largest. The suit came a day after Micron sued to challenge 14 patents owned by Mosaid for dynamic random access memory chips, or DRAM.

Separately, MOSAID Technologies Incorporated announced on July 27 that it has filed a motion to dismiss Micron Technology, Inc.'s Complaint for Declaratory Judgment, which was filed in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, San Jose Division on July 24, 2006, or in the alternative, to transfer the case
to the District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall
Division, where MOSAID's recently filed case against Micron and other
defendants is pending.

Business is booming in ED Texas. A new website ( is focusing on providing services and products to attorneys visiting Marshall, Texas while involved in IP litigation cases at the federal courthouse.

The Mosaid/Micron sequence illustrates the competitive filings of infringement and declaratory judgment (DJ) actions.
