Nebraska investigating Texas patent law firm

LINCOLN, Neb. — LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Authorities are investigating a Texas firm that has been accusing Nebraska businesses of infringing on patents.

Bruning says he has ordered Farney Daniels to stop sending letters while his office investigates whether they are deceptive.
