Update on Baker Botts Litigation
On Thursday, May 15th, the jury found the law firm Baker Botts negligent for $40.53 million in Axcess' malpractice suit against them for representing Savi Technologies and Axcess in patent prosecution work at the same time. However, the Court had previously issued Directed Verdicts based on a Dallas Appeals Court case where the claims of fraud and breach of fiduciary duty were combined into the negligence claim where the limitation on the time for filing suit is 2 years. The jury found the harm should have ended in 2007, one year too early for the statute to enable Axcess to recover damages.
