MIAMI — A Florida company claims a Missouri corporation has infringed upon its patent for tracking packages.
Shipping and Transit LLC filed a complaint Sept. 29 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Roll-on Industries, alleging that it violated the rights of the plaintiff under patent laws.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2000, Shipping and Transit LLC became aware that its patents '207, '359, '299 and '970 were directly infringed by the defendant, which utilize tracking and messaging technologies. The systems are purportedly protected by the plaintiff's patents, and as a result of infringement, the plaintiff suffered injuries to its business. The plaintiff holds Roll-on Industries responsible because the defendant allegedly induced infringement with knowledge that the induced acts are against the rights of the plaintiff and obtained profit from the plaintiff's work.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant, damages, interest, attorney's fees, costs and other relief as the court may deem proper. It is represented by Jason P. Dollard of Leslie Robert Evans & Associates in Palm Beach.
