NEW YORK, Sept. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- E. Mishan & Sons, Inc. ("Emson"), marketer and supplier of the BELL + HOWELL™ TACLIGHT™ flashlight, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Telebrands Corp. in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Emson asserts that Telebrands' ATOMIC BEAM flashlight infringes U.S. Patent No. 7,434,955 owned by Emson (the "Emson '955 Patent"). Emson seeks damages and an injunction that enjoins Telebrands from offering for sale and selling any products, including the ATOMIC BEAM, that infringe the Emson '955 Patent. Emson is confident that it will prevail in the lawsuit. The Emson '955 Patent was applied for on October 13, 2004 and issued on October 14, 2008.
Emson has made significant investments in advertising the BELL + HOWELL™ TACLIGHT™ flashlight, including a nationally broadcast infomercial which began running in early May 2016. The BELL + HOWELL™ TACLIGHT™ flashlight is available in national retail stores, such as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Target, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, among others.
