Firm Secures Win For Medical Device Manufacturer in Counterfeiting Lawsuit

August 23, 2017

On August 17, 2017, Patterson Belknap won a permanent injunction in the Eastern District of New York on behalf of a medical device manufacturer. The injunction bans multiple distributors from buying, selling or importing counterfeit versions of a blood glucose test strip our client produces. The strip, which is used by diabetics to monitor their blood glucose levels, has been the victim of counterfeiting multiple times, forcing our client to take action on several occasions. This latest victory dates back to a case filed in 2015 in which our client accused the defendants of manufacturing and distributing dangerous counterfeits around the world. The 2015 complaint stated, “This action is brought to shut down and punish those that are responsible for the manufacturing, distribution and sale of these potentially deadly counterfeit medical devices, and to seize the counterfeits to protect patients.”
