Featured Experience

Husch Blackwell Team Gains Favorable Judgment for Client in Trade Secret Litigation

Farmobile, an independent farm data company, faced allegations that it misappropriated trade secrets from competitor Farmers Edge. The lawsuit sought a judgment declaring the plaintiff to be the owner of certain Farmobile intellectual property. Persuasive argument by the Husch Blackwell team, led by Marnie Jensen and including Dustin Taylor, resulted in a complete victory on summary judgment for Farmobile.

Additional Experience
  • Won summary judgment for client in case alleging misappropriation of trade secrets under both state law and Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016.
  • Aided Sigmapharm Laboratories in arguing for claim construction. Court adopted proposed construction verbatim.
  • Prevailed before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on behalf of Sotera Wireless as it successfully invalidated eight of a competitor's patents in final, non-appealable judgments. Husch Blackwell had previously knocked out all disputed patent claims—175 in total—across eight related inter partes review (IPR) petitions before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, resulting in a precedential PTAB decision that provides a strategy for petitioners to avoid discretionary denial of IPR under the Fintiv factors. (Not all decisions by PTAB are marked precedential, but the Board found Husch Blackwell's arguments and methods so useful that it marked this decision precedential to help future IPR parties in navigating PTAB procedure.
