In the seemingly endless Apple-Motorola legal slugfest, Motorola has just taken a few new swings at its rival–possibly at the behest of its would-be acquirer, Google.
A new Motorola lawsuit, filed yesterday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida and spotted by patent blogger Florian Mueller, claims Apple is infringing on six of the company’s patents with two of its latest product offerings: the iPhone 4S and iCloud.
In the suit–Motorola’s second against Apple in this particular court–the company makes the case that Apple has infringed and continues to infringe on those patents. Motorola is seeking damages and an injunction of the two products.
“Apple’s infringing activities have caused and will continue to cause Motorola Mobility irreparable harm, for which it has no adequate remedy at law, unless Apple’s infringing activities are enjoined by this Court,” the company said in its filing.
Motorola notes that it filed the supplementary lawsuit because a court order barred it from adding additional infringement claims to its first suit.
