After four days of trial and a brief deliberation, jurors in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas found that Murphy USA infringed four claims regarding the automated synchronous pricing and advertising systems patents in dispute. The jury further awarded $9.25 million dollars for the plaintiffs, Bryan Freeny, James Freeny, and Charles Freeny III, the sons of noted Dallas-area inventorCharles Freeny, Jr.
Christopher Banys, and the team at Banys, P.C., are proud to have secured this victory for the Freeny family and of the tremendous relationship we’ve formed along the way.
The case is Freeny, et, al., v. Murphy USA, Inc., Case No. 2:13-CV-791-RSP (E.D. Tex.)
