Case Name: RSR Sales, Incorporated v. Lowe's Companies, Inc. et al
Docket Number: 4:12-cv-10719-GAD-MKM
Date Filed: 2/16/2012
Judge: Hon. Gershwin Drain
RSR Sales filed suit against Lowe’s for patent infringement of U.S. Patent No. 7,252,889 (“the ‘889 patent”), entitled “Glow-in-the-Dark Glazing Globes and Other Ornaments Particularly for Gardens”, for copyright infringement of U.S. Copyright Reg. Nos. TXul-252-249 and VA1-656-194, and for a violation of the Lanham act. The ‘889 patent generally relates to a method of fabricating glow-in-the-dark glazing globes or other objects. Lowe’s filed numerous motions attempting to dismiss the case due to lack of subject matter jurisdiction and tried to remove the state law claims from suit, which were unsuccessful. Ultimately, the parties agreed to a voluntary dismissal of the case on November 19, 2013.
