By John Honovich, Published Nov 18, 2019, 07:02am EST

Goliath JCI targeted startup Wyze this summer alleging the fast-growing consumer startup was violating a slew of JCI's patents.

Now, Wyze has fired back at JCI, not only refusing to pay up but counter alleging that JCI's patents are invalid and that JCI should pay Wyze.
