Epic and TCS lawsuit (update)

  • The US Court of Appeals, 7th Circuit, Chicago, held that the punitive damages award of $280 million is constitutionally excessive.

  • The court however upheld the compensatory damages award of $140 million, according to an exchange filing by TCS, India’s largest software services provider.

  • The US firm's lawsuit dates back to 2014. The Epic Systems had accused TCS stealing its intellectual property.


Epic had claimed that TCS employees were brought on as consultants to a Kaiser Permanente Sunnyside Medical Center in Portland to help implement an Epic software there and took more than 6,000 documents containing Epic’s development information by creating a fake user account. The user pretended to be an employee of the hospital and did not disclose that he was a consultant, the lawsuit said.
