CHICAGO — A Wheeling-based manufacturing company is suing Rushserve Ltd., a company based in the United Kingdom, seeking a series of declaratory judgments.
Absolute Turn Inc. filed a complaint on Feb. 3 in U.S. District Court in Chicago against Rushserve, alleging the foreign company has wrongly claimed rights based on drawings purchased from an auction of the involuntarily dissolved H.L. Fisher company.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Absolute Turn Inc. sustained damages when Rushserve allegedly claimed ownership of the H.L Fisher name, confusing consumers into believing H.L. Fisher did not go bankrupt.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks a declaration that the plaintiff did not breach any copyrights, a declaration that the plaintiff did not breach any trade secret rights, a declaration that the plaintiff did not breach any contract, damages, an injunction against the defendant, court costs and any further relief this court grants. The plaintiff is represented by Edward L. Bishop, Nicholas S. Lee, Connor P. Singleton and Stephanie N. White of Bishop Diehl & Lee, Ltd. in Schaumburg.
