SAN FRANCISCO – An Arizona corporation alleges a Santa Cruz company allegedly used its trademarked names on products for animals.
Farnam Cos. Inc. filed a complaint on May 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Santa Cruz Biotechnology Inc., citing trademark infringement, unfair competition and unjust enrichment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business as a result of its trademark Red Cell and Sand Clear, marks used on products for horses, being used without its consent. The plaintiff holds Santa Cruz Biotechnology Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly distributed and sold products that bear plaintiff's trademark on the defendant's supplements for animals.
The plaintiff seeks to enjoin the defendant from further infringing plaintiff's trademark, all damages, an order to the defendant to recall all infringing products, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. It is represented by Paul W. Reidl of Law Office of Paul W. Reidl in Half Moon Bay.
