BALLISTIC CASE COMPANY FILES INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT COMPLAINT AGAINST COPYCAT MOBILE PHONE CASES

A.G. Findings & Mfg Co., parent of Ballistic Case Company, a designer of advanced accessories for mobile electronic devices, today announced it has filed a complaint for unfair competition and infringement of its intellectual property rights against Cell-Nerds, LLC and BoxWave Corporation.

AGF filed this complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, alleging that Cell-Nerds and Boxwave infringe AGF’s intellectual property rights associated with its Shell Gell (SG) Series line of protective cases for mobile phones and is unfairly competing with AGF.

“Ballistic’s products are associated with innovative designs, engineering expertise, and high quality materials, and we’ve filed the lawsuit against Cell-Nerds and Boxwave to stop the company from copying our product designs,” said Alan Kleinman, CFO, A.G. Findings & Mfg. “The market for protective device cases is large enough that companies should not have to resort to copying the designs of industry leaders like Ballistic.”

AGF is asking for damages and attorneys’ fees and court costs, the destruction of the Cell-Nerds and Boxwave cases that infringe on AGF’s Shell Gell (SG) Series line, and an injunction against the importation and sale of infringing cases.

“Ballistic is an innovator of high quality protective device cases and has intellectual property associated with its innovative designs,” added Kleinman. “We protect our intellectual property rights in order to protect our interests and those of our customers.”

About Ballistic® Case Company

The Ballistic® brand was born approximately 6 years ago; however, it gained new purpose in the last few years. The popularity of rugged cases created opportunity for Ballistic. A quart of Ballistic’s employees are engineers with experience building high quality OEM accessories.

Unlike other cases, which were marketed as rugged, our engineers knew they could design a better case using their unique skills. Our goals were simple: build the best engineered case, offering the highest degree of drop protection and customer satisfaction. Our designs include many unique features, such as rubber on the inside to prevent scratches, absorb shock and promote cooling airflow.

Additionally, we offer a high degree of customization with optional layers, holsters that work with and without those layers, as well interchangeable bumpers to customize your level of protection and your look. Ballistic cases include patent pending features, such as flash isolation modules, energy absorbing corners and customized multiple layers.

We think everyone will drop their device. We say, “Just Drop It!” – as long as you are using a Ballistic case. Ballistic cases are designed to Survive Life!™

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
