Patent Troll Norman IP Holdings Escapes Massachusetts Litigation

A US District Court in Massachusetts has found that the patent infringement actions of Norman IP Holdings in other jurisdictions, while hiring Massachusetts-based legal counsel, “do not constitute sufficient minimum contacts with Massachusetts to support the exercise of personal jurisdiction.”  So, Tom-Tom, the plaintiff, will have to face Norman elsewhere. Hmmm-where would a GPS system determine that location to be? Texas, anyone?
