Plaintiffs Anthem Sports, LLC and Griffin Global Products, LLC (together, Anthem),

for their first amended complaint for tortious interference, unfair competition, breach of contract,

and declaratory relief as to Defendants Under the Weather, LLC and Eric Pescovitz (together,

UTW), allege as follows:

attached hereto as Exhibit A. This action further arises under the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051

et seq. and the laws of the State of Connecticut.

Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 3 of 14

JURISDICTION AND VENUE

7. This Court has subject matter jurisdiction over this action pursuant to 28 U.S.C.

1331 and 1338(a) because this action arises under the Patent Laws of the United States, 35

U.S.C. 1 and the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051, et seq., with a specific remedy sought based

upon the laws authorizing actions for declaratory judgment in the courts of the United States, 28

U.S.C. 2201 and 2202. This Court also has supplemental jurisdiction over the state law

claims under 28 U.S.C. 1367(a).

8. This Court has personal jurisdiction over UTW under the laws of the State of

Connecticut because, upon information and belief, UTW regularly conducts business in this

judicial district by selling and offering to sell its products to Anthem and directly to residents of

Connecticut and in this judicial district, including without limitation through its fully interactive

e-commerce website that is accessible to residents of this State. Specifically, UTW has sold

products allegedly covered by the Patents-in-Suit nationwide, including to residents of this State

and judicial district. Further, UTW regularly developed and conducted business with Anthem, a

Connecticut resident, with respect to products allegedly covered by the Patents-in-Suit. UTW

and Anthem ultimately entered into an agreement in this State and judicial district whereby

Anthem would be the exclusive online distributor for UTWs products allegedly covered by the

Patents-in-Suit.

9. Venue is proper in this judicial district pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1391 and 1400.

Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 4 of 14

BACKGROUND

The Prior Relationship between Anthem and UTW

10. The Patents-in-Suit purport to claim certain rights in designs for personal

enclosures that protect the user from weather while watching sporting events (UTW Personal

Enclosure).

11. At the time UTW first began selling the UTW Personal Enclosures, UTW was

unable to garner significant interest in the market and struggled to make appreciable sales.

12. In or around the fall of 2014, Anthem became aware of the UTW Personal

Enclosures and approached UTW to establish an exclusive online distribution relationship.

13. Through Anthems extensive efforts in early 2015, the UTW Personal Enclosures

gained traction in the marketplace and became commercially successful. Both Anthems and

UTWs sales of the UTW Personal Enclosures substantially increased during this time.

14. UTW discussed the formation of a business relationship with Anthem to further

build the market and enhance sales of the UTW Personal Enclosures. In exchange for Anthems

substantial investments in the promotion, marketing, and sales of the UTW Personal Enclosures,

as well as Anthems substantial involvement in product development, UTW and Anthem entered

into an agreement in Connecticut whereby Anthem would be the exclusive online distributor of

UTW Personal Enclosures other than UTW, who would continue to sell UTW Personal

Enclosures online (the Exclusive Distribution Agreement).

15. UTW suggested the formation of a partnership with Anthem with respect to the

UTW Personal Enclosures and requested that Anthem create an outline of the partnerships

terms. Anthem drafted an outline and further created an application to pitch the UTW Personal

Enclosures on the ABC show, Shark Tank, and one of Anthems principals drove Mr. Pescovitz

4
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 5 of 14

to the Shark Tank audition and took the lead role in the presentation. UTW never responded to

Anthems partnership term outline, and the discussions between the parties faded.

16. Following the commercial success of the UTW Personal Enclosures, UTW raised

the prices for the UTW Personal Enclosures sold to Anthem such that it no longer became

commercially feasible for Anthem to purchase and sell the product under the Exclusive

Distribution Agreement.

17. In breach of the Exclusive Distribution Agreement between Anthem and UTW,

UTW sold UTW Personal Enclosures to major sporting goods retailer DICKs Sporting Goods,

who in turn offered and is offering the UTW Personal Enclosures for sale online on its website.

18. Anthem desired to continue to offer personal enclosure products to its sporting

goods customers and decided to source pods from a different producer. Locating a different

manufacturer, Anthem began offering personal enclosure products (the Anthem Pods) that

Anthem ensured would not infringe any valid or enforceable claim of the Patents-in-Suit.

UTWs Threats of Infringement

19. UTW recently sued another personal enclosure product supplier, Above &

Beyond Balloons, Inc., for infringement of four of the Patents-in-Suit in the Southern District of

Ohio. Under the Weather, LLC v. Above & Beyond Balloons, Inc., No. 1:17-cv-39 (S.D. Ohio).

A true and correct copy of the complaint is attached hereto as Exhibit B. Specifically, the

complaint against Above & Beyond Balloons, Inc. alleges that UTWs personal enclosure

innovations have been the subject of widespread imitation by its competitors who have

attempted to capitalize on [UTW]s success. One such imitator is Above & Beyond, which

markets and sells a pop-up pod that copies [UTW]s inventive design . . . in violation of

[UTW]s intellectual property rights. Id. 3.

5
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 6 of 14

20. Through its actions, UTW has shown that it believes Anthem to be another such

competitor that is allegedly infringing upon UTWs rights in the Patents-in-Suit. On or about

April 7, 2017, one of UTWs principals left a voicemail for one of Anthems principals,

threatening a patent infringement lawsuit against Anthem and an overseas company that UTW

mistakenly believed to be supplying Anthem the following week.

21. The voicemail stated as follows:

Hey Mark, its Rick; just got an email from Anthem with your new
products. I shouldnt sound surprised, I assume thats how you work. I
just letting you know, and you can tell your friend Shanghai Eversuccess
as well, they will be sued as well as you, I have the patent on that design,
so, and if you think Im kidding, there will be a lawsuit for you next week.
Just letting you know.

22. To market the Anthem Pods, Anthem has employed various forms of social

media, including Facebook. Customers have expressed significant interest in purchasing the

Anthem Pods on Anthems Facebook page. See Exhibit C.

23. On numerous occasions and without justification, UTW or its representatives

have responded to customer comments indicating a desire to purchase Anthem Pods by stating,

for example, that [t]hese are illegal knockoffs and very poor quality. The legal ones are only

available at undertheweatherpods.com; these are illegal knockoffs only place to purchase is

undertheweatherpods.com. They were on sharktank last night; and [t]hese are complete knock

offs. If you want quality and the real original product go to the page Under the Weather. See

Exhibit D.

24. UTW has made threats against Anthem, its supposed supplier, and customers that

the Anthem Pods allegedly infringe one or more claims of the Patents-in-Suit.

6
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 7 of 14

25. Anthem alleges that the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale, or importation of

the Anthem Pods do not infringe any valid or enforceable claim of the Patents-in-Suit under 35

U.S.C. 271, whether directly, contributorily, through the doctrine of equivalents, or otherwise.

26. Anthem further alleges that Patents-in-Suit are invalid because they fail to meet

the conditions of patentability of otherwise comply with one or more of 35 U.S.C. 100 et seq.,

including without limitation 35 U.S.C. 101, 102, 103, and 112.

27. An actual justiciable case or controversy exists between Anthem and UTW with

respect to their dispute over infringement and validity of the Patents-in-Suit.

28. UTWs manifested intent to litigate the Patents-in-Suit against Anthem, as it has

done against at least one other accused infringer, threatens actual and imminent injury to Anthem

that can be redressed by judicial relief, and that injury is of sufficient immediacy and reality to

warrant the issuance of a declaratory judgment. Absent a declaration of noninfringement and

invalidity of the Patents-in-Suit, UTWs continued wrongful and baseless assertions of

infringement related to the Anthem Pods will cause Anthem substantial harm.

COUNT I
(Declaratory Judgment of Noninfringement of the Patents-in-Suit)

29. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

30. There is an actual, substantial, and continuing case or controversy between

Anthem and UTW concerning whether the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale, or importation

into the United States of the Anthem Pods infringe any valid or enforceable claim of the Patents-

in-Suit.

31. This controversy is amenable to specific relief through a decree of a conclusive

character.

7
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 8 of 14

32. The manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale, or importation into the United States of

the Anthem Pods does not infringe any valid or enforceable claim of the Patents-in-Suit.

33. Anthem has no adequate remedy at law and is entitled to a judicial declaration

that the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale, or importation into the United States of the Anthem

Pods does not infringe any valid or enforceable claim of the Patents-in-Suit, whether directly,

contributorily, or otherwise.

COUNT II
(Declaratory Judgment of Invalidity of the Patents-in-Suit)

34. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

35. There is an actual, substantial, and continuing case or controversy between

Anthem and UTW concerning whether the claims of the Patents-in-Suit are valid under 35

U.S.C. 101, 102, 103, or 112.

36. This controversy is amenable to specific relief through a decree of a conclusive

character.

37. All of the claims of the Patents-in-Suit are invalid because they fail to meet the

conditions of patentability or otherwise comply with one or more of the statutory requirements in

35 U.S.C. 100 et seq., including without limitation, 35 U.S.C. 101, 102, 103, and 112.

38. Anthem has no adequate remedy at law and is entitled to a judicial declaration

that the claims of the Patents-in-Suit are invalid.

COUNT III
(Unfair Competition, False Designations of Origin, False Description, and False
Advertising Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1125)

39. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

40. UTWs claims that the Anthem Pods are illegal knockoffs only available for

purchase from UTW have caused and are likely to continue to cause confusion, or to cause

8
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 9 of 14

mistake, or to deceive customers into believing that Anthem and UTW are affiliated, or that

certain products, goods, and services offered by Anthem are made by, sponsored by, originate

with, or are affiliated with UTW, in violation of 15 U.S.C. 1125.

41. Further, UTWs claims that the Anthem Pods are illegal knockoffs of very poor or

inferior quality misrepresent the nature, characteristics, and qualities of the Anthem Pods, in

violation of 15 U.S.C. 1125.

42. UTW has thus competed unfairly with Anthem and has realized unjust profits as a

result of its unfair competition in a matter to be established at trial.

43. UTW has acted with full knowledge that its representations regarding the Anthem

Pods are false and with the intention to preclude fair competition in the marketplace. UTWs

actions are intentional, willful, and were calculated to cause confusion, to cause mistake, or to

deceive.

44. UTWs actions have caused irreparable injury to Anthems reputation and

goodwill and, unless enjoined, UTW will continue its acts of unfair competition. Anthem has no

adequate remedy at law.

COUNT IV
(Tortious Interference with Business Expectancies)

45. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

46. Anthem has, and will continue to, pursue business and contractual relationships

with customers for the Anthem Pods. Anthem has an expectation of continued business

relationships with customers for the Anthem Pods, which will provide economic advantages,

revenues, and profits to Anthem. Given its customers express enthusiasm and interest in

purchasing the Anthem Pods, Anthem has a reasonable expectation of business expectancies

through contracts for sales of the Anthem Pods.

9
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 10 of 14

47. By virtue of UTWs assertions to Anthems customers that the Anthem Pods are

illegal knockoffs, UTW is aware of Anthems expectations regarding its pursuit of sales of the

Anthem Pods to customers and the economic advantage that Anthem derives and can derive

therefrom.

48. Knowing that the Patents-in-Suit are not infringed or invalid, and without having

any legitimate basis for its infringement position, UTW has wrongfully and willfully asserted

objectively baseless infringement claims against Anthem and customers in bad faith.

49. UTW has lodged its objectively baseless infringement claims against Anthem in

bad faith to unlawfully stifle competition and prohibit Anthem from fairly competing in the

marketplace for sales of the Anthem Pods that UTW has wrongfully accused of infringement.

UTW intentionally interfered with Anthems business expectancies with malice and an intent to

inflict harm on Anthem.

50. As a direct and proximate result of UTWs tortious interference, Anthem has

suffered and will suffer substantial irreparable harm and damages. Further, without injunctive

relief, UTW will continue to cause irreparable harm to Anthem.

COUNT V
(Violation of Connecticut Unfair Trade Practices Act)

51. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

52. UTWs conduct in improperly accusing the Anthem Pods of infringement and

attempting to wrongfully preclude Anthem from fairly competing is unethical, unscrupulous,

unfair, deceptive, and constitutes an unfair method of competition in violation of the Connecticut

Unfair Trade Practices Act, Conn. Gen. Stat. 42-110a et seq.

53. UTWs conduct described above was intentional, knowing, willful, malicious,

fraudulent, and oppressive, carried out for the purpose of competing unfairly with Anthem.

10
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 11 of 14

54. As a direct and proximate result of UTWs conduct, Anthem has suffered and will

continue to suffer irreparable financial loss and injury to its goodwill and reputation. As a result,

UTW is liable to Anthem for attorneys fees, costs, and punitive damages under Conn. Gen. Stat.

42-110g. Unless enjoined, UTW will continue its unlawful conduct, further injuring Anthem.

COUNT VI
(Common Law Unfair Competition)

55. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

56. UTWs actions described above constitute unfair competition in violation of

common law, as the aforementioned acts constitute an intentional and wrongful interference with

Anthems ability to fairly compete in the market for sales of Anthem Pods.

57. As a result, Anthem has suffered substantial damage and irreparable harm,

constituting injury for which Anthem has no adequate remedy at law. Unless enjoined, UTWs

acts will continue to cause Anthem to suffer irreparable harm.

COUNT VII
(Breach of Contract)

58. Anthem repeats and realleges the foregoing paragraphs as if fully restated herein.

59. Anthem has substantially complied with its obligations under the Exclusive

Distribution Agreement, which is a valid and binding contract between Anthem and UTW

supported by adequate consideration.

60. UTWs actions in selling the UTW Personal Enclosures to DICKs Sporting

Goods for resale online constitute breaches of UTWs obligations under the Exclusive

Distribution Agreement.

11
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9 Filed 04/13/17 Page 12 of 14

61. UTWs breach is material in that it frustrates and defeats the purpose of the

Exclusive Distribution Agreement to establish an exclusive online distribution relationship

between Anthem and UTW.

62. As a direct and proximate result of UTWs breach of the Exclusive Distribution

Agreement, Anthem has suffered and continues to suffer damages, and further, has suffered and

will continue to suffer irreparable harm for which it has no adequate remedy at law.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT


FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO

UNDER THE WEATHER, LLC, CASE NO.: 1:17-cv-39

Plaintiff, JUDGE:

v. COMPLAINT

ABOVE & BEYOND BALLOONS, INC. JURY DEMAND

Defendant.

Plaintiff Under the Weather, LLC (Under the Weather), complains and alleges as

follows against Defendant Above & Beyond Balloons, Inc. (Above & Beyond or

Defendant):

NATURE OF THE ACTION

1. Inspired by countless weekends spent braving the elements to watch his children

participate in outdoor sports, Eric Pescovitz set out to design a personal enclosure to protect the

user from the elements. In 2010, this goal became a reality as Mr. Pescovitz started his

company, Under the Weather, to promote and sell his inventive personal pop-up pods to the

public.

2. Since 2010, Mr. Pescovitz has invested in intellectual property to protect his

innovations and business. Such investments have resulted in seven issued United States design

patents, with an additional twelve patent applications pending in the United States Patent and

Trademark Office. Mr. Pescovitz has also invested to secure a U.S. registered trademark for

UNDER THE WEATHER (the UTW Registered Mark). The success of Mr. Pescovitzs
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9-2 Filed 04/13/17 Page 3 of 13

business and his tireless promotion of his company and products has resulted in the UTW

Registered Mark becoming a well-known and valued mark in the marketplace that the public

readily associates with pop-up pods.

3. Despite the intellectual property rights of Under the Weather, its innovations have

been the subject of widespread imitation by its competitors who have attempted to capitalize on

Under the Weathers success. One such imitator is Above & Beyond, which markets and sells a

pop-up pod that copies Under the Weathers inventive design and improperly used the UTW

Registered Mark in violation of Under the Weathers intellectual property rights.

THE PARTIES

4. Under the Weather is an Ohio Limited Liability Company with a principal place

of business located at 5218 Wooster Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45241.

5. On information and belief, Above & Beyond is a California Corporation with a

principal place of business located at 2400 Pullman Street, Santa Ana, California 92705.

6. On information and belief, Above & Beyond does business under the name

EasyGo Products.

JURISDICTION AND VENUE

7. This is a civil action against Defendant Above & Beyond for patent infringement

under the patent laws of the United States and for trademark infringement under the trademark

laws of the United States.

8. The Court has subject matter jurisdiction over this action under 28 U.S.C. 1331

because it involves a federal question; under 28 U.S.C. 1338 because it involves an Act to

Congress related to patents and trademarks; and under 15 U.S.C. 1121, because it involves a

violation of the Lanham Act.

2
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9-2 Filed 04/13/17 Page 4 of 13

9. This Court has specific personal jurisdiction over Above & Beyond because,

among other things, Above & Beyond has sold products in this judicial district and in Ohio that

infringe Under the Weathers intellectual property rights; Above & Beyond continues to

advertise through publicly available on-line retailers; and, on information and belief, continues

to sell products in this judicial district and in Ohio that infringe Under the Weathers intellectual

property rights.

10. This Court has general personal jurisdiction over Above & Beyond because,

among other things, on information and belief, Above & Beyond regularly solicits and transacts

business in Ohio and in this judicial district; Above & Beyond engages in a persistent course of

conducting business in Ohio; and Above & Beyond derives substantial revenue from goods that

infringe the patents-in-suit that are sold in Ohio and this judicial district.

11. Venue is proper in this judicial district under 28 U.S.C. 1391 and 1400.

to Eric Frank Pescovitz as inventor. A true and correct copy of the 689 Patent is attached hereto

as Exhibit B. Under the Weather is the owner of all right, title and interest in the 689 Patent,

3
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9-2 Filed 04/13/17 Page 5 of 13

including the right to sue and recover damages for infringement of the 689 Patent and obtain a

preliminary or permanent injunction.

14. Under the Weather is the owner of U.S. Patent No. D691,690 (the 690 Patent),

which is titled Personal Enclosure Front and was duly and lawfully issued on October 15,

2013, to Eric Frank Pescovitz as inventor. A true and correct copy of the 690 Patent is attached

hereto as Exhibit C. Under the Weather is the owner of all right, title and interest in the 690

Patent, including the right to sue and recover damages for infringement of the 690 Patent and

obtain a preliminary or permanent injunction.

15. Under the Weather is the owner of U.S. Patent No. D711,996 (the 996 Patent,

and collectively with the 688, 689, and 690 Patents the Patents-in-Suit), which is titled

Personal Enclosure and was duly and lawfully issued on August 26, 2014, to Eric Frank

Pescovitz as inventor. A true and correct copy of the 996 Patent is attached hereto as Exhibit D.

Under the Weather is the owner of all right, title and interest in the 996 Patent, including the

right to sue and recover damages for infringement of the 996 Patent and obtain a preliminary or

16. Under the Weather is the owner of a federal registration for the UTW Registered

Mark, U.S. Registration No. 4106243. A true and correct copy of the Registration Certificate is

attached hereto as Exhibit E.

17. Above & Beyond has sold and continues to sell a pop-up pod marketed as the

Climate Capsule Sport Shelter (Above & Beyond Pop-Up Pod). On information and belief,

Above & Beyond sells the Above & Beyond Pop-Up Pod in association with the name EasyGo

Products. A true and accurate copy of a search webpage and product webpage from

4
Case 3:17-cv-00596-MPS Document 9-2 Filed 04/13/17 Page 6 of 13

Walmart.com are attached as Exhibit F. A true and accurate copy of product webpages from

Amazon.com are attached as Exhibit G.

18. On information and belief, Above & Beyond has used the UTW Registered Mark

in commerce in a manner that is likely to cause confusion, to cause a mistake, or deceive. A

general search for Under the Weather on Amazon.com lists the Above & Beyond Pop-Up Pod

as the first result, even above products whose actual title is Under the Weather. A true and

correct copy of a search webpage from Amazon.com is attached as Exhibit H. When a consumer

conducts such a search with the intention of finding an Under the Weather pop-up pod, the

consumer is likely to be confused, mistaken, or deceived by the search results when making a

purchasing decision.

19. On information and belief, for its posting of the Above & Beyond Pop-Up Pod,

Above & Beyond identified Under the Weather as keywords to be used by Amazon.com in

Amazon.coms search algorithm to draw customers that are searching for an Under the Weather

pop-up pod to the Above & Beyond Pop-Up Pod product page.

20. Above & Beyond has used a variation of the UTW Registered Mark in the title of

its product listing on Amazon.com Climate Capsule Sports Shelter - The Weather Tent You

Sit Under Sports Pod (emphasis added). On information and belief, Amazon.com prioritizes the

words in a products title in its search algorithm; therefore, Above & Beyond crafted the title to

further improve the positioning of the Above & Beyond Pop-Up Pod in Amazon.com search

results for customers searching for an Under the Weather pop-up pod.
