Mobile Check Deposit Campaign Expands, Hitting CitiGroup and Wells Fargo

August 10, 2019

Lighthouse Consulting Group LLC has followed up its July case against Bank of America with August suits hitting CitiGroup (2:19-cv-00264) and Wells Fargo (2:19-cv-00269). Two patents—generally related to using an “image device” such as a “fax” or a scanner to capture and transmit images of checks and deposit slips to a bank—are asserted in all three complaints, with infringement allegations focused on mobile deposit features within the defendants’ banking apps. Lighthouse Consulting Group alleges that each defendant signed a separate nondisclosure agreement in 2007 under which the earliest applications in the asserted family of patents were discussed.
