A suit involving patent and registered design claims adds to a growing list of legal disputes related to patent, licensing fees and associated items between Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM).

While court records on the filing are limited, Apple has referred in response to request for comment by Bloomberg to a statement previously issued asserting Qualcomm's insistence on charging "royalties for technologies they have nothing to do with."
