LG was also sued over a similar patent titled "Mobile radio handover determination based on rise/fall of signal quality as a function of time", also assigned to BT. Steelhead presently owns this patent, including the exclusive right to recover for past infringement it said.

Steelhead demanded a jury trial in all suits, asking for damages sufficient to compensate for past infringement and any continuing and future infringement.
