MoneyGram International Wins Appeal on Patent Case

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

Dallas, TX -- MoneyGram International (NYSE: MGI), a global leader in the money transfer industry, announced that today the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit issued a ruling in favor of MoneyGram’s appeal of a patent suit brought by Western Union which was originally decided in 2009. The Appellate Court found that on the grounds of obviousness, certain patents relating to enabling customers to send transactions without the use of written send forms were invalid. This decision reverses the lower court’s ruling on all issues raised by MoneyGram's appeal.
