Kenall Files Lawsuits to Defend its Indigo-Clean Disinfection Lighting

November 30, 2017

Kenall Manufacturing, a solid-state lighting and controls manufacturer, filed lawsuits alleging patent infringement against ClearVu Lighting1 and NewStar2 Lighting on November 17, 2017 in Federal Courts in New York and Delaware, respectively.

Patrick Marry, President of Kenall, stated that, “The technology uses visible light to safely disinfect environments to prevent deadly and costly infections. We believe this is a significant new technology in the effort to reduce hospital acquired infections.” “The defendant’s products were developed in collaboration with New York-based Vital Vio.

We are the exclusive licensee for markets in North America and intend to utilize Kenall’s resources to enforce our intellectual property rights in this area,” Marry concluded.
