3M and 3M Innovative Properties Co. filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota today against Andover Healthcare Inc. seeking injunctive relief and damages regarding Andover’s CoFlex 2 Layer Compression System.
The suit alleges, among other claims, a strong likelihood of confusion, mistake and deception between Andover’s CoFlex 2 product and 3M’s innovative Coban 2 Layer Compression System arising from Andover’s wholesale appropriation of 3M’s distinctive trade dress, copyrighted packaging and copyrighted instructions. The suit also alleges false advertising and unfair business practices.
