Jury awards MT company $28.4 M in software lawsuit

Jurors awarded Edulog $9.4 million each for lost license fees, lost annual license maintenance fees and lost royalties, along with $70,000 for lost perpetual license fees.

The verdict does not end Laidlaw/First Student's contract to promote Edulog's software, said Edulog attorney Sam Bull.

The original purpose of the contract was to benefit both companies and school districts "by promoting the use of the software to its fullest potential in order to allow our schools to operate as efficiently as possible," said Dr. Hien Nguyen, a former University of Montana professor who developed the algorithms. "To that end, we look forward to working with Laidlaw/First Student in the future."
