DuPont Drops Kevlar Lawsuit Against Easton-Bell

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - DuPont Co. has dropped a federal lawsuit accusing sports equipment maker Easton-Bell Sports of misusing the Kevlar trademark in packaging for bicycle tires and locks.
    
But the fight may not be over. DuPont's filing Thursday dismissing the lawsuit comes two days after a federal judge in California refused to dismiss or transfer to Delaware a lawsuit filed by Easton-Bell. In that lawsuit, the Scotts Valley, Calif., company sought a declaration that it is not infringing on DuPont's trademarks.
    
Wilmington-based DuPont filed its complaint in Delaware in January, claiming Easton-Bell's prominent use of the Kevlar trademark on packaging infringed on DuPont's trademark and suggested that DuPont endorses or sponsors the tire and lock products, which it does not.
    
Easton-Bell filed its lawsuit in California the week before DuPont filed its case.
