Firm Scores Win for Medical Device Manufacturer in Counterfeiting Lawsuit
On January 16, 2018, Patterson Belknap secured a significant victory for our client, a medical device manufacturer, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven M. Gold issued a report and recommendation that our client be granted a permanent injunction, banning multiple manufacturers from infringing, counterfeiting, or otherwise violating our client’s federally registered trademark on a blood glucose test strip, which is used by diabetics to monitor their blood glucose levels. In addition, the Court recommended that our client be awarded $3 million in statutory damages and $6 million in punitive damages.
