DALLAS, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Law Journal has released its list of the TOP 100 VERDICTS OF 2010. Top Verdict number 8 on that list was Dillard's, Inc. vs. i2 Technologies, Inc., tried in Dallas County District Court. The lawyers representing national department store chain Dillard's, Inc. (DDS) were Terry Oxford and Ophelia Camina of the Dallas office of Susman Godfrey, LLP.
The dispute arose after Dillard's licensed supply chain software from i2 Technologies, now a subsidiary of JDA Software (JDAS). The software, called Replenishment Planner and Demand Planner, was licensed to help Dillard's make replenishment decisions for its merchandise. Dillard's alleged that the licensed software lacked essential functionality and that i2 misrepresented the products' capabilities.
After five weeks of trial, the jury awarded Dillard's over $226 million, finding i2 liable for fraud and breach of warranty. After lengthy post-trial motions were heard and denied, a Judgment for over $239 million, including interest, was entered. The case is currently on appeal.
