USAA settles with Mitek

USAA and Mitek (NASDAQ: MITK) said that they have agreed to settle all pending litigation between them.

USAA and Mitek Systems have been in litigation since March 29, 2012. After recent meetings, the parties have agreed to resolve these claims as follows:

USAA will move to dismiss all of its remaining claims, including its claims for misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of contract, fraud, inequitable conduct, and invalidity of Mitek´s patents.

Mitek will move to dismiss all of its remaining claims, including its claims for trade defamation and violations of the Lanham Act. Mitek covenants not to sue USAA for patent infringement for products currently sold, marketed, or advertised by USAA, including its Deposit@Mobile application.

The parties acknowledge that distinct patent rights exist for each of them. Neither party admits liability on any claim, and neither party is making any payment to the other. USAA is retaining its license to use Mitek´s Quick Strokes, Quick FX Pro, and Image Score software products.
