PITTSBURGH, PA, AUGUST 15, 2018 – Pittsburgh, PA-based intellectual property law firm, Ference & Associates, announced today that it secured a preliminary injunction in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in a civil action against Yiwu Lanhome Jewelry Co., Ltd, and multiple other defendants. The order prohibits the companies from manufacturing and selling alleged counterfeit goods similar to the Negg®, boiled egg peeler, manufactured and sold by plaintiff, Airigan Solutions, LLC., based in Connecticut. The order also prohibits Amazon, Alibaba and other online stores and payment systems from providing services to the defendants’ user accounts as well as any activity with the defendants’ financial accounts with these companies pending the outcome of the litigation.

“We are pleased that the court granted equitable relief so that we can adequately litigate the claims against the defendants,” said Stanley Ference, the firm’s Managing Partner and lead attorney on the matter. “We look forward to an expedited discovery process and the opportunity to try the case on our client’s behalf.”

“We worked hard for a long time to develop a superior product for our customers and to obtain the appropriate patent and trademark protection,” said Sheila Torgan, co-creater/maker of the Negg® product. “We are happy that we will have the opportunity to present our case and stop counterfeit versions of the Negg® from being sold.”

The order was issued by Gregory H. Woods, United States District Judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The order extends the ruling in a Temporary Restraining Order issued on July 19, 2018.

Stanley Ference was assisted in this matter by Brian Samuel Malkin and the team of attorneys and professionals at Ference & Associates.
