Warrior Sports, Inc. filed suit against Tribe7 Lacrosse for patent infringement of six of the following Warrior Sports’ patents: U.S. Patent 7,900,275 (“the ‘275 patent”) entitled “Protective Sports Glove With Floating Cuff Portion;” U.S. Patent 7,636,951 (“the ’951 patent”), entitled “Protective Sports Glove With Floating Cuff Portion;” U.S. Patent 7,318,241 (“the ’241 patent”), entitled “Padded Sports Glove having Improved Flexibility and Breathability;” U.S. Patent 7,117,540 (“the ‘540 patent”), entitled “Padded Sports Glove having Improved Flexibility and Breathability;” U.S. Patent 6,813,780 (“the ‘780 patent”), entitled “Padded Sports Glove having Improved Flexibility and Breathability;” and US Patent 6,550,069 (“the ‘690 patent”), entitled “Padded Sports Glove Having Improved Flexibility and Breathability” (collectively, the “patents-in-suit”). The patents-in-suit generally relate to protective sports gloves which provide increased flexibility and protection for a wearer’s hand, wrist, and forearm. Specifically, Warrior Sports alleged that Tribe7 Lacrosse had willfully sold products covered by the patents-in-suit in its stores without Warrior’s consent. On April 16, 2013, the Warrior Sports voluntarily dismissed the case without prejudice.
