It seems like tech companies being sued over alleged patent infringements these days has become the norm, and it looks like Apple will have to add another company to the list in the form of a company from Texas called Bluebonnet Telecommunications. According to the lawsuit, it seems that Bluebonnet believes that Apple has infringed on a patent which allows for call forwarding. Bluebonnet alleges that devices like the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 have infringed upon the patent, which has been described as a phone communicating with a central switch to display a list of options, which are then displayed for the user.
Unsurprisingly Bluebonnet is seeking a permanent injunction against Apple and its infringing products, and are seeking damages which includes both pre- and post-judgment interest. We’re not sure if Bluebonnet has a genuine complaint or if they are just another patent troll seeking for a quick way to grab some cash from Apple who might have other pressing matters, like the lawsuit with Samsung, on their hands.
