Lewmar involved in trademark suit in Connecticut

Posted on

A federal court in Connecticut denied three motions for summary judgment from marine manufacturer Lewmar in a trademark infringement and unfair trade practices case.

Dax Labs LLC announced that a trial on the remaining issues in the case is scheduled to begin later this year.

Dax said Lewmar said in its motions that it did not breach the covenant of good faith and fair dealing when it manufactured a patented sailboat winch handle known as the OneTouch and took other actions designed to deprive Dax of the benefits of a 2006 licensing agreement with Lewmar to manufacture and sell Dax’s award-winning winch handle.

In rejecting the motions, U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut cited evidence supporting Dax’s assertions that Lewmar engaged in intentional bad faith conduct, including the manufacture of a competing winch handle known as LiteTouch.
