LOS ANGELES — A San Luis Obispo eye care company is suing Kimberley-Clark, alleging unauthorized used of its Soft Touch trademark.

Live Eyewear Inc. filed a complaint Jan. 25 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California Western Division against Kimberly-Clark Corporation, and Does 1 through 10, alleging trademark infringement in violation of Lanham Act.

According to the complaint, on Jan. 27, 2015, through counsel, Live Eyewear contacted Fastenal, a retailer, to put them on notice that the plaintiff was concerned of Fastenal's use of its Soft Touch trademark, which had been used for sale by Kimberly-Clark. The suit says Kimberly-Clark, without permission from Live Eyewear, has offered, distributed, marketed, and/or sold eye wear and sun wear in connection with the Soft Touch trademark. 

Live Eyewear seeks trial by jury, all damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, and all other relief the court deems appropriate. It is represented by attorney Nicole M. Norris of San Luis Obispo.
