Court Denies Wells Fargo’s Motion To Nix Patent Suit

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Federal Circuit refused to dismiss a lawsuit accusing Wells Fargo and other major banks of infringing on patents held by DataTreasury Corp. for electronic check-clearing technology.

     DataTreasury acquired the patents in 2006 from e-Banc and WMR e-Pin, which previously licensed them to Wells Fargo and other banks.
     The three-judge panel ruled that DataTreasury is not bound by the arbitration clause in the licensing agreements, because the provision applied to the original parties only.
