WACO, Texas, Jan. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VoIP-Pal.com Inc. (“VoIP-Pal”, “Company”) (OTCQB: VPLM) announces that on January 20, 2022, the Company filed a petition for a Writ of Mandamus with the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC), challenging the decisions of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in a declaratory-judgment action filed by Twitter: Twitter, Inc. v. VoIP-Pal.com, Inc., No. 5:21-cv-02769. The case name and number for the petition is In re: Voip-Pal.com, Inc., No. 22-123.

The Company is asking the CAFC to reverse the district court’s order denying VoIP-Pal’s motion to dismiss the underlying declaratory-judgment action for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction. The declaratory-judgment action filed by Twitter involves VoIP-Pal’s Patent No. US 9,935,872. This patent has never been asserted by VoIP-Pal against Twitter.

In the petition, VoIP-Pal seeks relief from the Court “to stop Twitter’s manipulative and harassing practices.” Twitter’s response to the petition is due by January 31, 2022 and VoIP-Pal’s reply is due by February 3, 2022. The petition has been posted on the Company’s website www.voip-pal.com, and can be accessed here.
