LOS ANGELES – A Nevada bodybuilding supplement maker claims a New Jersey company is selling supplements under a similar name.
IronMag Labs LLC filed a complaint on Nov. 23 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Panther Sports Nutrition, Jason H. Hibbert and Does 1-10 alleging trademark infringement and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it owns the trademark Super DMZ for its supplements and that it has suffered damages to its business. The plaintiff holds Panther Sports Nutrition, Hibbert and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly are selling supplements under the Super-DMZ Max name, which the plaintiff alleges can cause confusion to consumers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendants from further infringing plaintiff's trademark, order the defendants to impound or destroy all infringing marks, award the plaintiff all profits and damages believed to be in excess of $500,000, punitive damages, all legal fees and interest plus all other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Michael D. Adams and Benjamin C. Deming of Rutan & Tucker LLP in Costa Mesa.
