Cap Index Settles Lawsuit
Against Data Company
CAP Index, the nation’s leading provider of crime risk forecasting services, is
pleased to announce that it has settled the lawsuit it brought against Location,
Inc. CAP’s suit, filed in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, alleged
copyright and trade dress violations. CAP settled those and other claims on
terms that are confidential, by agreement of the parties to the lawsuit.
“After nearly two years of litigation, we are very pleased with this result.”
said Jon D. Groussman, J.D., President and Chief Operating Officer of CAP. “We
are in business to serve our clients with the vital information they need to
identify crime risk. This settlement will enable users of crime risk
information—people who are tasked with the responsibility of protecting human
life and property—to make the important distinction between CAP Index, the gold
standard and pioneer of the field, and others.”
Groussman credited his legal team— James L. Beausoleil, Jr., Christiane Schuman
Campbell, Samuel Apicelli, and James J. Halligan of Duane Morris LLP—for the
“We are delighted with the hard work and great results we got from our team of
lawyers,” he said.
The suit was brought by Cap Index against Location, Inc. in July of 2013 (Civil
Action No. 13-cv-04225-CDJ).
