Comfort Research Sues Over "Frameless Chair" Patent

On November 10, 2008, Comfort Research, LLC filed a patent infringement action against Markos & Widly, Inc. d/b/a American Furniture Alliance in the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan Southern Division (1:06-cv-1054). Comfort Research alleges that American Furniture Alliance infringes U.S. Patent No. 6,732,391 B2 ("the '391 Patent") entitled "Frameless Chair." The '391 Patent covers a frameless chair comprising a gas permeable outer liner filled with polyurethane foam pieces. The '391 Patent apparently protects Comfort Research's popular "Fuf Chair" shown above. American Furniture Alliance has yet to be served as of the date of this posting. Comfort Research is represented by William Louis King, III of King & Partners PLC in Holland, MI.
