SDNY Civil Jury Trial Led to $885M Verdict Against Syntel Now TriZetto Pushes For More

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 2 – Mauritius based Syntel had a Master Servicing Agreement with TriZetto, to provide software application development and other services, that allowed it to terminate it if TriZetto was acquired by a competitor of Syntel. It was: Cognizant. 

  On October 16 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lorna G. Schofield held a final final pre-trial conference. Inner City Press covered it. 

 Judge Schofield ruled on the admissibility of exhibits and told the parties to come to her courtroom in 40 Foley Square on Monday, and from there across the street to 500 Pearl to pick a jury and start the trial in Courtroom 24B (while one of the few other large courtroom is hosting a murder for hire jury trial presided over by Judge P. Kevin Castel). 

 Inner City Press is covering the latter, to the verdict, and this one too.

 On October 19, after opening statements, TriZetto first witness was on the stand, Michael Noonan. Outside in the hall, a faint echo of last year's T-Mobile / Sprint civil trial before Judge Marrero, there was a box of sandwiches for this corporate trial. In the docket, from the short list of uncontested facts: Syntel was serving UnitedHealthcare, Inc. (UHG).

 On October 23, Judge Schofield held the final charging conference, over two hours. She eschewed proposals of lengthy jury instructions.

On October 27, the jury ruled for $885,000,000 for Syntel.

On November 2, Judge Schofield held another telephone proceeding, on all matters that remain to be adjudicated by the Court. She asked for filing by Friday, since it felt like Friday. We'll have more on this.

This case is Syntel Sterling et al. vs. TriZetto Group et al., 15-cv-211 (Schofield)
