Case Name:Warrior Sports, Inc. v. Reebok International Ltd.
Judge: Hon. Patrick J. Duggan
On January 21, 2011, Plaintiff Warrior Sports, Inc. filed suit against Defendant Reebok International, Ltd, alleging that Defendant’s hockey glove, lacrosse glove, lacrosse head, and lacrosse shoulder pad products infringed on Plaintiff’s own patents for hockey gloves, lacrosse gloves, lacrosse stick heads, and lacrosse shoulder pads (U.S. Patent Nos. 6,122,769; 6,550,069; 6,813,780; 7,117,540; 7,318,241; RE38,216; 7,103,924 and 7,797,760).
The parties began to enter into settlement negotiations soon after Plaintiff filed the complaint. However, on August 25, 2011, Reebok answered the complaint, denying the allegations and asking for declaratory judgment of non-infringement. On October 12, 2011, Judge Duggan issued a scheduling order, setting discovery to end by April 15, 2012. On January 12, 2012, the parties agreed to voluntarily dismiss the case.
