Maier & Maier Helps Cigar Reserve LLC Settle Southern District of Indiana Patent Litigation

The Maier & Maier litigation team recently secured the dismissal of another patent infringement suit that had been brought against its client. Last month, District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt dismissed patent infringement claims brought by Plaintiff Thomas A. Person against Cigar Reserve LLC and its owners, Brian and Chanda Kurland.

In October 2020, Mr. Person filed a Complaint in the Southern District of Indiana alleging infringement of two patents relating to cigar spills. The first was a utility patent, U.S. Pat. No. 8,507,070, entitled “Cedar spill,” and the second was a design patent, U.S. Pat. D664,292 entitled “Cedar Spill for a Cigar.” The complaint demanded trebled damages along with injunctive relief from Cigar Reserve and the Kurlands.

The Maier & Maier litigation team was able to defend Cigar Reserve and its owners from the Plaintiff’s demands and helped them come to a favorable resolution of the case. Cigar Reserve joins Maier & Maier’s constantly growing list of happy clients that have obtained favorable rulings thanks to the firm’s team of expert patent litigators that litigate at cost effective and efficient rates.

With another resolution for their client, Maier & Maier continues its string of successful representations in contentious matters, earning favorable results in district court, at the PTAB, and before the ITC.
