Bushnell and Laser Technology File Preliminary Injunction Motion Against the Brunton Company and Its Chinese Manufacturer
Overland Park, Kansas – -(ShootingWire.com)- Bushnell Inc. and Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) filed a motion in the United States District Court of Kansas to enjoin the Brunton Company and its Chinese manufacturer Lanshuo Photoelectric Science and Technology Co., Ltd. from further sales of Brunton’s Echo® 440 laser rangefinders. Bushnell and LTI previously sued Brunton, Lanshuo, and other defendants for patent infringement and alleged that the defendants are infringing several Bushnell and LTI patents covering various proprietary laser rangefinder technologies.
If the Court grants Bushnell’s and LTI’s Preliminary Injunction Motion, Brunton and Lanshuo would be required to immediately cease any further manufacture or sales of the Echo® 440 laser rangefinders.
“Bushnell and Laser Technology have invested a substantial amount of resources in the patented technology and believe the Preliminary Injunction is necessary to prevent Brunton from unfairly benefiting from the technology we rightly own.” said Phil Gyori, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Bushnell Inc. “While we welcome honest competition, we expect our competitors to honor our patent rights and we will vigorously enforce them if necessary.”
