Unwired Planet must give Apple documents from its U.K. patent suit

A California federal judge has ordered Unwired Planet to turn over to Apple documents from its U.K. patent suit against Samsung, Huawei Technologies and Google, finding that the information is relevant to an upcoming trial over wireless technologies, according to Law360.

In July 2016, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit handed down an opinion vacating in part a 2015 summary judgment that found Apple not in infringement of certain cellular and voice recognition patents by Unwired Planet. The company sued Apple in 2012, claiming a variety of Apple products infringed 10 of its patents for cellular data transmission, voice recognition systems, device provisioning and other related technologies. Apple's iPhone, iPad, App Store, iTunes, iCloud, iOS and a selection of first-party apps were targeted in the suit.

Unwired is suing Samsung, Huwei and Google for patent violations, as well.
