McKool Smith is on quite a roll, folks. In May, we told you about its $200 million patent verdict against Microsoft, which was augmented to $290 million this month by Tyler, Texas, federal district court judge Leonard Davis. The firm was also lead counsel to Visto, which in May reached an agreement to receive $267.5 million from BlackBerry maker Research in Motion to settle a three-year patent dispute.
On Wednesday the firm scored yet another big win. A federal jury in Marshall, Texas, ruled that the German software vendor SAP should pay Versata Software, McKool’s client, $138.64 million in damages for infringing two of its patents. The patents in question cover Versata’s software that allows its customers to manage pricing for its products along complex distribution networks. Versata had asked the jury for $190 million.
