A Federal Court in Indianapolis has refused to set aside a $4 million judgment and permanent injunction issued in favor of WHIPgroup client NETZSCH Premier Technologies. The Defendants sought to overturn the monetary award and injunction in post-judgment pleadings. The Court stated Defendants’ argument “strains credulity” and “fails to identify any facts or evidence on which to support his motion to alter or amend the judgment.” The case concerns Defendants’ counterfeiting use of NETZSCH’s trademarks on industrial equipment.
