CFC Dismisses Suit with 31 Patent and Copyright Claims


In Keehn v. United States (March 1, 2013), a pro se claimant alleged that he was solely responsible for thirty-one defense-related products, databases, concepts, doctrines, and other intellectual property while working for various defense contractors and his own company from 1975 to 1992. The complaint further alleged that these efforts generated an estimated $8.7 billion in corporate revenues and that, in addition to other theories, the Government was responsible for taking his intellectual property without just compensation under the Just Compensation Clause.
