LOS ANGELES — A California corporation has filed a claim against several defendants citing infringement of patents pertaining to the plaintiff's microdermabrasion technology.
Altair Instruments Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 12 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Pulsaderm LLC, Lovely Skin Inc., Hawrych MD LLC, and Does 1 through 10, citing alleged patent infringement, specifically that they manufacture and sell a microdermabrasion device that infringes the plaintiff's patents.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business as the result of its patents being infringed. The plaintiff holds Pulsaderm LLC, Lovely Skin Inc., Hawrych MD LLC and Does 1 through 10 responsible because the defendants allegedly offer for sale a device that infringes several claims of the plaintiff's 739 patent.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks preliminary and permanent injunction against the defendant, award damages plus interest to plaintiff and treble damages, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems reasonable. The plaintiff is represented by Ronald P. Oines, Benjamin C. Deming and Kathryn Domin of Rutan & Tucker LLP in Costa Mesa.
