A Pennsylvania company is suing a fire sprinklers manufacturer and supplier over claims of patent infringement.

Victaulic Co. filed a civil action complaint Sept. 18 in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against The Viking Corp. and Supply Network Inc., doing business as Viking SupplyNet, alleging patent infringement.

The complaint states that Victaulic patented certain flexible sprinkler connection models, the 399 patent, with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on March 3.

The complaint states that Viking infringed upon this patent with its own flexible sprinkler connection models.

Victaulic seeks a judgment declaring patent infringement against the defendants and ordering them to pay damages for their infringement, plus interest, court costs and attorney fees.

Victaulic is represented by Robert R. Baron Jr. and Marc S. Segal of Ballard Spahr LLP in Philadelphia, and of counsel by Darle M. Short of Oliff PLC in Alexandria, Va.

U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania case number 5:15-cv-05206-JFL
