CPC Patent Technologies v. Apple (9th Cir. - May 18, 2022)

Judge Smith describes the plaintiff in this litigation as follows:

"CPC is an investment company that recently acquired a portfolio of patents related to biometric security. In February 2021, it sued Apple in the Western District of Texas, alleging that several Apple products (including “iPhones, iPads, and personal computers”) infringe patents in the portfolio."

That's certainly kinder than calling the plaintiff a patent troll.
