Smokus Focus Settle Patent Infringement Lawsuit
RANCHO CORDOVA, California – All Plastic, Inc. dba: BUD BAR DISPLAYS today announced the settlement of a Patent Infringement lawsuit filed in May 2020 against SamDan LLC dba: SMOKUS FOCUS and its owners Daniel Russell-Einhorn and Samuel Whetsel. The settlement terminates two pending Actions before the District Court of Colorado against SamDan LLC, which does business as Smokus Focus. The lawsuits alleged that Smokus Focus, and its owners, infringed on All Plastic’s U.S. Patent 10,384,834 and U.S. Patent 11,001,413, both entitled “Container for Providing Aromatic Sampling and Visualization of Contents”, for cannabis containers that include a viewing lens and aroma vent.
As part of this Settlement, Smokus Focus and its owners admit infringement of All Plastic’s patents and agreed to cease all manufacturing and sales of the JetPack, JetPack Infinity, Quasar and Gas Giant products. However, All Plastic granted Smokus Focus a limited, non-exclusive license for it, and its sole domestic distributor HBI International, to liquidate their remaining inventory of infringing products.
All Plastic, Inc. is a USA manufacturing company dedicated to producing containers and displays for commercial customers, including retail establishments. It and its predecessors have been in operation for over 30 years and have a reputation as a provider of high-quality containers and displays. After medicinal cannabis became legal in California in 1996, All Plastic became one of the first domestic manufacturers of displays and containers for medicinal and recreational cannabis dispensaries under their dba: BUD BAR DISPLAYS. Bud Bar Displays has become a leading manufacturer of containers and displays specifically for medicinal and recreational cannabis dispensaries and is often referred to as a Pioneer of this Industry. All Plastic, Inc. holds several domestic and international patents for their products.
