Irell Scores $200M Infringement Jury Award for USAA
Irell & Manella LLP helped the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) convince a jury to award $200 million in damages and a finding of willful infringement against Wells Fargo relating to patents for mobile check deposit technology. The November 6, 2019 award in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas covered a three-year period of infringement for patents relating to mobile remote deposit capture. Irell had previously blocked the institution of seven CBM/IPRs filed by Wells Fargo. The Irell team included Jason Sheasby, Lisa Glasser, Tony Rowles, Andrew Strabone and Benjamin Monnin.
