NPR files suit on behalf of DataTreasury Corporation based on its check patenting technology. The litigation arises from DataTreasury’s attempt to create a secure electronic archive for checks.
After unsuccessfully marketing it services to several banks, DataTreasury later discovered the banks had set up their own electronic check archives without taking a license to DataTreasury’s patents that cover such an archive. In 2002, NPR began its representation of DataTreasury. NPR is taking a vital role in DataTreasury’s litigation against various banks, such as JPMC.
