Texas Judge Rejects $4.7M Attorney Fees Appeal in Highmark Case

30 September 2015 News

Law360 reports a Texas federal judge found Allcare Health Management Systems Inc. cannot appeal an earlier decision that awarded $4.7 million in attorneys’ fees to Highmark Inc. The court ruled Allcare failed to file an appeal on time without reasonable cause.

In June, a Texas federal judge upheld an earlier award in Highmark’s long-running dispute against Allcare. The district court found that Allcare's unsuccessful prosecution of an information management system patent claim remained exceptional following a remand after Highmark’s successful appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Highmark is represented by Gardere Partner Craig Florence and Cynthia Kernick from Reed Smith LLP.
