Legal battle swirls around the patent on Square

Friday, 31 January 2014 10:21 Published in Local News
A couple of local men are going toe-to-toe in federal court in St. Louis. At the heart of the issue is a patent infringement lawsuit against payments startup Square Inc. 
According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the suit reflects a long-simmering legal battle over Square's technology.  
Robert Morley, an associate professor in Washington University’s engineering department, is suing Square and its co-founders Jack Dorsey and Jim McKelvey, claiming that he was unfairly cut out of the Square enterprise after developing key software.  
Square is a small plastic device that plugs into mobile devices including smartphones and iPads and processes credit card transactions.
Morley alleges breach of fiduciary duty, patent infringement and fraud against Square and its co-founders.
Morley seeks an unspecified amount of damages.
 

St. Clair County settles with more inmates

Friday, 31 January 2014 10:18 Published in Local News
 BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois sheriff says his county has agreed to pay $3,500 to three former inmates to settle their federal lawsuit over living conditions at the jail.
St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson tells the Belleville News-Democrat the payouts to Floyd Robinson, Timothy Headrick and Myron Barber come without the county admitting any wrongdoing alleged in the 2011 lawsuit.
The ex-inmates alleged unacceptable jail conditions, including crowding, inmates forced to sleep on the floor, the foul odor of human waste, insects, mice, small amounts of food per serving and inadequate access to a law library.
The newspaper reported earlier this week that the county also agreed to pay up to $2,000 to each of three former jail inmates who sued over alleged guard abuse.
