LOS ANGELES – A Corona
auto parts manufacturer alleges a Pomona corporation is offering a
similar product to its own without authorization.
Engineering Inc. filed a complaint on Feb. 27 in the U.S. District Court
for the Central District of California against
Injen Technology Co. LTD and Does 1-10
alleging trade dress infringement.
According to the complaint,
the plaintiff alleges that the defendant is distributing and selling an
infringing automotive air filter housing that is confusingly similar to
plaintiff's Momentum Product without authorization. The plaintiff holds
Injen Technology Co. LTD and Does 1-10 responsible because the
defendants allegedly deprived plaintiff of the gains, profits, benefits
and advantages that should and would have accrued to plaintiff.
plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against
defendants, injunction enjoining and restraining defendant from further
infringement, statutory and punitive damages, defendant’s profits from
infringement, costs, attorneys' fees, interest, and other relief as the
court may deem just. It is represented by Franklin E. Gibbs and Victoria
L. White of Gibbs & White PC in Irvine.
