U.S. Supreme Court

Goshen Mfg. Co. v. Myers Mfg. Co., 242 U.S. 202 (1916)

Goshen Manufacturing Company v.

Hubert A. Myers Manufacturing Co.

No. 60

Argued November 1, 2, 1916

Decided December 11, 1916

242 U.S. 202

of future injury arising from the facts that defendant retained the junior patent under which the alleged infringements were practiced and justified, did not disclaim intention to proceed under it, denied infringement, put in issue plaintiff's patent and title, and, shortly before this bill was filed, brought an action for damages based on the published notice of infringement, averring that it was still in the business of manufacturing the articles in question.

215 F.5d 4 reversed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
