NTAP vs. Sun - the second lawsuit

Sun filed in reaction to the NTAP allegations a second lawsuit. Mike Dillon, our general counsel, writes in his blog:

Today, we filed a second complaint against NetApp for infringement of six additional patents and other related claims. Although it may appear a separate case, it is in reality, part of the same litigation originally brought by NetApp in Eastern Texas to impede the adoption of ZFS.

The second complaint was filed at a court in Northern California. This is the area where both companies are located and it´s a more sensible choice than the court in Patenttrollville … errr … Eastern Texas.
