[12/11/09 UPDATE: The Minnesota Litigator jumped the gun. Before the appeal comes Fair Isaac’s motion for an amended judgment, judgment as a matter of law, a new trial or, in the alternative, findings of fact filed 12/10/09.]
In a large lawsuit covered in this blog previously here (discovery deadline dispute), here (technology in the courtroom), and here (rejected evidence of document destruction), the jury returned a defense verdict (below is the completed (and redacted) verdict form).
The jury also reportedly found that Fair Isaac knowingly made a false representation of fact when applying for its trademark of it 300-850 scoring range. (The consequences of this are outside my area of practice and outside the subject matter of this blog but this is an area apparently recently addressed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.)
