Chicago-based PureEdge Lighting won its patent infringement lawsuit filed last year on August 4, 2021, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The court entered a judgement in favor of PureEdge Lighting, the Plaintiff, against the Defendant, Italian lighting manufacturer Fabbian S.R.L.

Both manufacturers offered a suspension fixture system: PureEdge’s award-winning Lazer Line and Fabbian’s Metro F49. Lazer Line’s lighting system features a patented turnbuckle mounting system held under U.S. Patent No. 9,033,541. As a result of the court ruling, Fabbian is permanently prohibited from marketing/selling its Metro F49 or any similar tension-mounted system in the USA. Furthermore, Fabbian must destroy all existing Metro F49 inventory for sale in the U.S.

“We are pleased with this ruling that continues to protect our engineering, creativity, and hard work. We are happy to know that our industry – and the judicial system – recognizes our efforts to innovate original products and bring them to designers all over the world,” said Gregory Kay, owner & CEO of PureEdge Lighting. “We are engineers, artists, electricians, and designers at PureEdge Lighting and will continue to stand behind our products and defend them if needed.”
