Represented Western Union in cross-patent infringement action in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas involving patents for staging money transfers. Our litigation team succeeded in obtaining summary judgment of non-infringement of MoneyGram’s patent, and then secured a jury verdict in favor of Western Union, finding that MoneyGram's FormFree system infringes Western Union's Money Transfer By Phone patents and awarding damages totaling $16.53 million. The court further entered a permanent injunction against MoneyGram. The Federal Circuit later reversed the trial court on the basis of obviousness. Western Union Co. v. Moneygram Int'l, Inc., No. 1-0372 (W.D. Tex. filed May 11, 2007).
