Crimson Trace Files Lawsuit Against LaserMax
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Crimson Trace Corporation, Inc, the Oregon-based manufacturer of LASERGRIPS(R) laser sights, filed suit in U.S. District Court in Portland, Oregon against LaserMax, Inc. of Rochester, New York to address LaserMax's infringement of four United States patents.
Crimson Trace seeks court-ordered injunctive relief and unspecified damages for patents assigned to the company related to laser sighting devices for firearms.
"Crimson Trace respects the intellectual property of other companies, and we insist that other companies respect ours," said Lew Danielson, president of Crimson Trace. "Developing and marketing patented technology is at the core of the company's market position, and we have been forced to take action to protect that position," he added.
Davis Wright Tremaine LLP represents Crimson Trace Corporation. F. Ross Boundy, Benjamin J. Byer and John F. McGrory, Jr. filed the suit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland, Oregon.
