WEST PALM BEACH – A Boynton Beach shipping company has filed suit against a Michigan cosmetics company over a patent dispute.
Shipping and Transit LLC filed a complaint on April 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, West Palm Beach Division against Makeup Geek LLC citing alleged patent infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it has been injured and will continue to be injured unless and until a monetary judgment is entered in its favor. The plaintiff holds Makeup Geek LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly directly infringed its '207, '359, '299 and '970 patents, which deal with tracking packages during shipping.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an injunction preliminarily and permanently enjoining infringement, compensation for damages as it may have suffered, attorneys’ fees and costs and for such other and further relief as the court may deem just and proper. It is represented by Jerold I. Schneider, Joel B. Rothman and Diana Mederos of Schneider Rothman Intellectual Property Law Group in Boca Raton.
