Short Take: CSC, Australian subsidiaries file intellectual property suit

Computer services firm Computer Sciences (CSC) and its Australian subsidiaries have filed suit against Policy Management Systems (PMSC) to protect its intellectual property on CSC Colossus, an application that insurance adjusters use in the evaluation of personal injury claims. The lawsuit pertains to PMSC's Claims Outcome Advisor (COA) product, a property and casualty insurance application, the company said. Also named in the suit is Australia-based NeuronWorks that developed PMSC's product, along with four executives at NeuronWorks who are former employees of CSC Australian subsidiaries and were involved in the development or marketing of the Colossus product. CSC said the petition contains requests for various forms of relief, such as unspecified monetary damages for breach of contract and trade secret misappropriation.
