PHILADELPHIA — A fabric manufacturer is suing Ripstop by the Roll LLC, a North Carolina limited liability company, citing alleged false advertising.
Dutch Clips LLC, d/b/a Dutchware Gear, filed a complaint on Nov. 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Ripstop by the Roll LLC, alleging the North Carolina limited liability company misrepresented the nature, characteristics and qualities of its goods.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that defendant's actions are causing, and will continue to cause, damage and immediate irreparable harm to plaintiff and to its valuable reputation and goodwill with the consuming public. The plaintiff holds Ripstop by the Roll LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly falsely represented to the public that it offers various fabric having ROBIC and HyperD fabrics and meeting specific material properties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order directing defendant to immediately cease and desist selling goods in any way represented as having ROBIC and HyperD fabrics and award for damages, interest, and all other relief as the court deems appropriate. It is represented by Justin Tomevi of Barley Snider in York.
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 5:18-cv-04727-JLS.
