U.S. District Court for the Central District of California issues preliminary injunction

Davidson Law Group, together with Ergoniq LLC, obtained a preliminary injunction on behalf of DMF Lighting against AMP Plus Inc. dba ELCO Lighting in, DMF Inc. v. AMP Plus Inc. et al., Case No. 2:18-CV-07090. DMF is a leader in the LED lighting industry. Its innovative recessed downlighting solution is protected by U.S. Patent No. 9,964,266. The Court found evidence of irreparable harm supporting a preliminary injunction, including loss of customers, market share, price erosion and reputational harm as a result of ELCO’s infringement. The Court also found that the balance of the hardships tipped in favor of DMF because the preliminary record indicated that ELCO intentionally copied DMF’s product and “[o]ne who elects to build a business on a product found to infringe cannot be heard to complain if an injunction against continuing infringement destroys the business so elected.”
