Encyclopaedia Britannica is suing Dickstein Shapiro for more than $250 million, claiming that the firm botched a patent application. The suit, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, alleges that Dickstein Shapiro mishandled several patents, leading the encyclopedia maker to lose a patent infringement suit it brought against several GPS manufacturers in 2007. According to the suit, Dickstein acted in self-interest when it learned of the problems with the patents and tried to remedy the situation.
