St. Louis (PRWEB) April 29, 2008 -- A patent infringement lawsuit has been filed in a St. Louis federal court on behalf of St. Louis-based manufacturer US Ring Binder against the Framingham, Mass.-based retailer Staples.
Filed on April 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, as detailed in the complaint, US Ring alleges that Staples in its product line of Binders called collectively "Better Binders ™" infringes on a patent developed and owned by US Ring.
The plaintiff seeks the enjoinment of further patent infringement, treble damages and the impounding and destruction of all infringing products.
The suit was filed by Anthony G. Simon and Timothy E. Grochocinski with the Simon Passanante law firm.
Simon noted that US Ring, headquartered in the St. Louis area, has been in business for more than 100 years. "US Ring and its predecessor have a long history of designing and developing innovative products and are leaders in securing United States patents in the Ring Binder industry with some patents dating back to 1907. It invests heavily in its intellectual property and will take appropriate action when it feels its rights have been violated".
