SAN FRANCISCO — An overseas company has filed suit against an Indiana company, claiming it allegedly copied its hoverboard designs.
Hangzhou Chic Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd. filed a complaint on Aug. 19 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Swagway LLC, alleging that the Indiana company manufactured and distributed a product that infringed the plaintiff's patents.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Hangzhou Chic Intelligent Technology Co. Ltd. suffered damages from having its patent infringed. The plaintiff holds Swagway LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly sells and imports hands-free smart boards that contain elements that infringe several claims of the plaintiff's patents.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendant from infringing the plaintiff's patents, award actual damages to the plaintiff, interest, award total profits made by the defendant derived from the wrongful act to the plaintiff, enhanced damages, all legal fees and any other relief as the court deems appropriate. It is represented by Robert F. McCauley of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP in Palo Alto.
