(October 28, 2021, Washington, DC) - Qingdao Hollyren Cosmetics Co., Ltd. (“Hollyren”) has secured a significant trial victory at the US International Trade Commission (ITC). On October 28, the presiding chief administrative law judge of the ITC found that Hollyren did not violate Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, because the Complainant, Lashify Inc., lacks the required domestic industry for all the asserted patents and none of Hollyren’s accused eyelash products infringe the asserted ’984 patent. The chief administrative law judge also rejected Complainant’s request for a general exclusion order and for cease and desist orders as to Hollyren to the extent that a violation is found.
Lashify Inc. first filed this ITC suit on September 9, 2020 based on patent infringement allegations. Hollyren takes Lashify’s allegations seriously and has been actively defending itself throughout the litigation. As always, Hollyren respects the IP rights of others and it also vigorously defends and protects its own reputation and interests.
