Patent Case Against YKK For Zipper Patents Set For 2 Trials with Japanese Interpreters Required

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 2– Au New Haven, LLC sued Japan-based YKK Corporation for alleged patent violations about zippers. That was in 2015.

On December 29, 2022, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

Judge Woods had several items to address. He ruled that if Defendants' witnesses Abinobu Shibata and Masayuki Sarumaru testify in either of the upcoming trials, they must do so through a Japanese interpreter.

Also, Plaintiffs' Exhibit 77 is excluded from the "high end outerwear trial but not excluded from the second trial.

The case is Au New Haven, LLC, et al. v. YKK Corporation, 15-cv-3411 (Woods)
