WILLIAMSPORT – A Mexican corporation and its Cheswick subsidiary claim a Florida corporation has infringed on its patents with its door and door-related products.
Vitro Flat Glass LLC and Vitro S.A.B. De C.V. filed a complaint on Sept. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Masonite Corp. alleging patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs own patents '282, '944 and '946. The plaintiffs hold Masonite Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly manufactured doors, transoms and/or sidelites with rectangular inserts using a method that infringes at least one claim of plaintiff's patents and induced third parties to sell these products.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek declaration that the defendant has infringed on plaintiffs' patents, damages to the plaintiff including interest, treble damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. They are represented by John W. McIlvaine, Thomas C. Wolski and David A. DuMont of The Webb Law Firm in Pittsburgh.
