LOS ANGELES – A Corona auto parts manufacturer alleges a Pomona corporation is offering a similar product to its own without authorization.
Advanced Flow 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.
The 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.
