Irell Nets Additional $102M Patent Jury Verdict for USAA
Irell & Manella LLP persuaded a jury to award the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) $102 million in damages and a finding of willful infringement against Wells Fargo relating to two patents for mobile remote deposit capture technology. The jury’s January 10, 2020 award was handed down just two months after Irell convinced another jury to award USAA $200 million and a finding of willful infringement against Wells Fargo for two patents for the auto capture process. Both cases were heard in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The Irell team included co-lead counsel Jason Sheasby and Lisa Glasser, as well as associates Tony Rowles, Andrew Strabone, Benjamin Monnin, Kelsey Schuetz and Ingrid Petersen.
