LIFETIME PRODUCTS FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST HON
December 20, 2001
CLEARFIELD, UTAH – Lifetime Products Inc., a worldwide leader in the folding table market, announced that it has filed a lawsuit against The Hon Corporation. in the Federal District Court in Salt Lake City, Utah. The lawsuit alleges that Hon has engaged in acts of patent, copyright and trade dress infringement in connection with their blow-molded, polyethylene folding banquet tables.
Lifetime has asked the Court for an award of money damages, as well as an injunction that would prohibit Hon from developing, selling, or licensing products that infringe upon Lifetime’s patents, trade dress, and copyright interests. The law firm of Workman, Nydegger, and Seeley is representing Lifetime.
Lifetime is evaluating the conduct of other competitors as well, and Lifetime will proceed aggressively against those who Lifetime determines are infringing upon the valuable intellectual property interests embodied in Lifetime’s line of folding tables.
In 1995, Lifetime Products invented blow-molded polyethylene picnic tabletops. Blow-molded polyethylene tabletops are stronger and more durable than wood, and are stain resistant. Lifetime expanded its blow-molding technology in 1998 by introducing the first blow-molded polyethylene folding banquet table. Today, Lifetime is the world’s largest manufacturer of these polyethylene top folding tables.
