Taylor Brands, LLC v. Columbia River Knife & Tool Company (E.D. Tenn.; Fed. Cir.)

A win on summary judgment of non-infringement (on assisted opening knives) for our client Columbia River Knife & Tool (“CRKT”) in the Eastern District of Tennessee. An early resolution sought by CRKT resulted in minimal discovery for CRKT limited to 22 models CRKT included in its motion, which were representative of every assisted opening knife in CRKT’s product line alleged to infringe. Plaintiff consented to entry of a final judgment dismissing its infringement claims with prejudice and the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the judgment of no infringement.
