Terry Oxford and partner Ophelia Camina win $226 million fraud verdict and judgment for Dillard's.
Their $226 million jury verdict in Dillard's, Inc. vs. i2 Technologies, Inc. was one of the Top Ten Jury Verdicts in the United States in 2010. The dispute arose after Dillard's, Inc. (DDS) licensed supply chain software from i2 Technologies, Inc., now a subsidiary of JDA Software Group, Inc. (JDAS)..
After five weeks of trial, a Dallas jury found i2 liable for fraud and breach of warranty, awarding over $76 million in benefit-of-the-bargain damages and $150 million in punitive damages against i2. The jury also rejected i2's counterclaims. After lengthy post-trial motions were heard and denied, a Judgment for over $239 million, including pre-judgment interest, was entered. The case is currently on appeal.
