Summary judgment of no infringement granted in favor of Trudeau Corporation
In this case involving a design patent, Chef’n Corporation accused Finnegan client Trudeau Corp. of infringing a patent for a silicone vegetable steamer. The Western of District of Washington granted summary judgment of no infringement in favor of Trudeau. As part of the order, Judge Pechman also granted Trudeau’s motion to strike the declarations of two industry experts produced by Chef’n. Earlier in the case, Trudeau successfully defeated Chef’n’s motion for a preliminary injunction.
