Civil Practice – First-to-File Rule – Intellectual Property – Patent Infringement Claim – Pipe Coupling (access required)

Victaulic Co. v. Eastern Industrial Supplies, Inc. A prior-filed action in the Northern District of Georgia brought by the manufacturer of the allegedly offending device – the SlideLok pipe coupling – involves the same patents and legal claims as this action against a SlideLok distributor. Although the parties are not identical, they are similar, and the first-to-file rule applies.
