Caselas LLC has filed a lawsuit in the Western District of Texas against Volusion LLC, an e-commerce software company for patent infringement.

The plaintiff alleges that the defendant infringed its patents-in-suit with U.S. patents 7,529,698 (the ’698 patent”); 7,661,585 (the ’585 patent); 9,117,206 (the ’206 patent); 9,117,230 (the ’230 patent); and 9,715,691 (the ’691 patent) via various features on its e-commerce software platform regarding electronic payments without permission or a license.

The plaintiff reportedly said that the ’698 patent generally relates to methods that cover receiving information regarding a transaction involving an account, processing the information regarding the transaction with a processing device using information regarding the account, generating a report or a message in response to the processing of the information regarding the transaction and transmitting the information report to a communication device associated with a merchant, vendor, or provider of a good, product, or service.

The plaintiff reportedly accused the defendant of making, selling, advertising, offers for sale, uses, or otherwise provides electronic payment processing services and/or merchant account services through its Volusion Payments and Fraud Score with an apparatus having multiple interconnected infrastructures that infringe the Asserted Patents of the plaintiff.

According to the complaint, Volusion infringed at least claim 20 of the ’698 patent via the accused instrumentalities because they purportedly comprise an apparatus for providing electronic payment processing services.

The plaintiff is seeking a declaratory judgment in its favor; an award for damages, costs, and fees; a permanent injunction; an award for royalties; and other relief.

The case is ongoing.
