Dr. Robert Morley v. Square Inc.

Caldwell Cassady & Curry represented Washington University in St. Louis Professor Robert Morley in his lawsuit against Square, Inc., Jack Dorsey, and Jim McKelvey for patent infringement and breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of trade secrets, exclusion of Dr. Morley from Square, and related business torts after Dr. Morley invented the famous Square credit card reader and helped create the company. The case in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri concluded after the parties reached a mutually agreeable settlement in 2016.
