South Korean smartphone giant Samsung Electronics has been sued by US-based data security company PACid Technologies for infringing the American firm’s patents on biometric solutions, according to a US legal resources website and news reports on Thursday. 

On Justia, a US legal resources website, brief information of the case filed on Friday by PACid Technologies with the Texas Eastern District Court was posted, revealing that the Korean tech titan is involved in another major patent infringement case after about a 6-year-long legal dispute with Apple on design patents. 

According to the summary of the case, the US security firm accused Samsung of infringing two patents owned by the firm in the US and one in Korea.
