he lawsuit alleges that defendant’s metal comfort base and wood comfort base, which is being actively marketed and offered for sale to casinos, infringes two of six United States patents for slot bases held by AC Coin & Slot and TC Millwork.
The lawsuit further alleges that the infringement has been carried out with full knowledge of AC Coin & Slot and TC Millwork’s patents. In this regard, AC Coin & Slot and TC Millwork’s lawsuit requests a court declaration of direct and willful infringement, a permanent injunction, monetary damages and attorneys’ fees.
