MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, October 28, 2014 — Coupons.com Incorporated (NYSE: COUP), a leader in digital coupons, today was granted summary judgment in a lawsuit brought against the company by Document Security Systems, Inc. (NYSE: DSS), in October 2011. DSS had alleged that Coupons.com misappropriated trade secrets and breached confidentiality agreements – a claim that DSS’s CEO told investors was worth approximately $240 million in damages.
Today’s ruling, handed down by the U. S. District Court for the Western District of New York, vindicates Coupons.com.
“We’re happy with the judge’s ruling, which we always expected,” said Steven Boal, president and CEO of Coupons.com Incorporated. “This validates what we have maintained all along – that the case was and is completely without merit. We’re happy to put it behind us.”
