PHILADELPHIA — A design firm is suing two companies for allegedly infringing on the plaintiff's patented LED assembly products.
Fiber Optic Designs Inc. filed a lawsuit on March 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Holidynamics Inc. and Anewalt’s Lawn & Landscape Inc., citing patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff designed and obtained patents for jacketed LED assemblies and light string. The defendants allegedly directly and/or through intermediaries have been shipping, making, using, advertising, and selling products that infringe on the the plaintiff’s patents, with sales online through the U.S. and Pennsylvania.
The plaintiff claims to have provided a cease and desist letter, but in February 2016, the plaintiff allegedly purchased the product from the defendants and it was shipped in the judicial district.
Fiber Optic Designs Inc. seeks declaration of patent infringement and enjoinment from further production of the products in question, compensatory damages, treble damages, attorney fees, and a trial by jury. It is represented by Dylan J. Steinberg of Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller, in Philadelphia; and Joseph W. Berenato III and David S. Taylor of Berenato & White LLC, in Bethesda, Maryland.
