A doctor/inventor licensed technology to a major medical device distributor and manufacturer. The medical device company sold thousands of products incorporating the doctor's technology. The doctor exercised his contractual right to audit the company's books and records and Bruce L. Ross & Company was appointed auditor. The company refused to produce some of the information requested and to make much of the data accessible in digital form. The Bruce L. Ross & Company team spent months digitizing the information, creating a custom Microsoft Access database to assist in the analysis and reconciling the output with royalty reports that had been provided to the doctor. Mr. Ross ultimately testified in a patent infringement action that the company had not made sufficient relevant data available to him to allow him to complete his audit. In addition, the to a significant damage award for patent infringement, the jury ordered the company to pay the doctor the entire cost of the audit plus punitive damages for its failure to cooperate with the audit.
