Can I sue because my GPS might be spoofed? | RNTF Apr 2019
The U.S. Supreme Court’s answer seems to be “yes.”

Earlier this year it declined to hear an appeal from Fiat Chrysler and let a class action suit against the company go ahead. The plaintiffs assert that their vehicles were designed without sufficient cyber-security protections.

Apple and Qualcomm’s blockbuster lawsuit starts Monday, here’s why it matters - The Verge apr 2019
"At the heart of the conflict is one core question: how much is Qualcomm’s technology worth? Apple claims that Qualcomm has demanded excessive fees to use its modems and patents, while Qualcomm asserts that Apple is using the legal system to try to get a good deal on its technology. It’s a critical question for the entire industry — you can’t make a modern smartphone without coming into contact with Qualcomm’s patents, so the outcome of these lawsuits could have an enormous effect on every company that manufactures phones, as well as Qualcomm’s bottom line. "

"When Qualcomm sells its modems, it’s not just selling hardware. It’s also selling a license that’s bound up with that hardware, part of an alleged “no license, no chips” policy. But Apple says that Qualcomm has been able to charge more for these patents than it should have because the company is also the dominant supplier of smartphone modems. If any manufacturer doesn’t agree to the license fees, Qualcomm has the power to cut them off from modems, too."

Apple and Qualcomm’s Billion-Dollar Staredown
April 13, 2019 | WSJ | By Tripp Mickle and Asa Fitch.

Apple has called Qualcomm a monopoly and said Mr. Mollenkopf has lied about settlement talks between the companies. Qualcomm has accused Apple of deceiving regulators around the world and stealing software to help a rival chip maker.

For two years, the companies have bickered over the royalties Apple pays to Qualcomm for its patents. Discord between the CEOs, who bring different management styles and principles to the table, has deepened the divide. They have dug into their positions as the dispute has escalated....Apple’s patent lawsuit against Qualcomm is set to go to trial—with both CEOs expected to testify in a case where billions of dollars are at stake. .....Cook’s view that Qualcomm’s licensing practices—taking a 5% share of most of the sales price of an iPhone—was just plain wrong, allowing the chip maker to profit off Apple innovations in display and camera technology.....

Litigation Funders Push Back Against In-House Lawyers' Call for Disclosure | The Recorder
Litigation funders have responded forcefully to a group of in-house lawyers who are asking for more fulsome disclosures of third-party funding in federal litigation.
A group of 30 current and former top lawyers at major companies including Google, Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc. signed onto a letter last month backing a proposed amendment to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 26(a)(1)(A) that would require the full disclosure of third-party funding agreements in civil actions.

In response, leaders from three major litigation funders Wednesday fired off their own letter to the committee at the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, which is considering the proposed changes. They call the in-house lawyers’ letter ”a PR stunt” by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for Legal Reform, which has sought to reign in the litigation finance industry. The in-house counsels’ request, the funders wrote, amounts to “a push for forced disclosure of irrelevant information that one party is simply curious to know.”
