La-Z-Boy Files Suit Against Holland House

La-Z-Boy Greensboro, Inc. brought suit against The H.T. Hackney Co., d/b/a Holland House Furniture on March 30, 2009 in the United States District Court Middle District of North Carolina. In its complaint, La-Z-Boy alleges infringement of U.S. Design Patent Nos. D484,329, D490,626, D504,037, and D505,805 along with trade dress infringement and unfair competition. La-Z-Boy's design patents are based on the designs of fashion designer Jessica McClintock and cover a line of girl's youth furniture. The collection is sold through La-Z-Boy's Lea Industries division as part of the Jessica McClintock Romance Collection and the Jessica McClintock Heirloom Collection. The accused collection is Holland House's "LA BELLE" collection. An image from the '329 Patent and the La Belle collection are below.
