US-based Blue Pumpkin Software is suing its former lawyers Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy and Gray Cary Ware & Freidenrich, claiming they provided inadequate counsel in the early phase of a patent case it has just won.
The company is seeking $2.5 million in damages from James Pooley, David Dolkas and their firms, Milbank and Gray Cary respectively, New York Lawyer reports today (2 December 2003).
