On October 24, 2012, 3form, Inc. ("3form") of Salt Lake City, Utah, filed a complaint against Meridien Accents, Inc. ("Meridien"), a Florida corporation with its principal place of business in LaGrange, Georgia, alleging infringement of its design patent directed to an architectural wall design.

3form claims to be the owner of all right, title, and interest in U.S. Patent No. D621,068 S, titled "Architectural Panel with Thatch Reed Design."  3form alleges that Meridien's products designated as "MA9002" and "MA9054" infringe the '068 patent.  3form also alleges that Meridien's actions have been willful, such as to make the case exceptional under 35 U.S.C. §§ 284 and 285 and entitle 3form to enhanced damages and attorney's fees.

The case is 3form, Inc. v. Meridien Accents, Inc., No. 3:12-cv-00156-TCB, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, and is assigned to U.S. District Judge Timothy C. Batten.
