COMPLAINT

Plaintiff Hunter Fan Company (“Hunter”), for its Complaint against Defendant Luminex

International Co., Ltd. (“Luminex”), states as follows:

NATURE OF THE ACTION

1. This is an action by Hunter against Luminex for patent infringement arising under

the Patent Act.

THE PARTIES

2. Plaintiff Hunter Fan Company is a corporation organized and existing under the

laws of the State of Delaware, having its principal place of business located at 7130 Goodlett

Farms Parkway, Suite 400, Memphis, TN 38016.

3. Upon information and belief, Defendant Luminex International Co., Ltd., is a

company organized and existing under the laws of Taiwan and having its principal place of

business located at 5F, No. 30, Yee Shien Road, Taipei, Taiwan. Luminex does business in

Wisconsin, directly or through intermediaries, including at least the importation, sale, and offer

for sale of its products, including those accused herein of patent infringement, to customers
Case: 3:18-cv-00344-wmc Document #: 1 Filed: 05/10/18 Page 2 of 10

located in Wisconsin, including in the Western District of Wisconsin. Luminex’s infringing

products are then resold and distributed throughout the United States.

JURISDICTION AND VENUE

4. This Court has subject matter jurisdiction over this action under 28 U.S.C. §

1338(a), as it is a civil action arising under an Act of Congress relating to patents; under 28

U.S.C. § 1331 as it involves a federal question; and under 28 U.S.C. § 1332 as the action is

between citizens of a State and a nonresident alien, and the amount in controversy in this action,

exclusive of interest and costs, exceeds the sum of $75,000.00.

5. This Court has personal jurisdiction over Luminex pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 801.05

based upon Luminex’s engagement in substantial and not isolated activities within the State of

Wisconsin, based upon the injury to Hunter arising out of Luminex’s patent infringement in the

State of Wisconsin, and based upon Luminex’s sufficient minimum contacts with the State of

Wisconsin. Upon information and belief, Luminex regularly imports infringing goods into the

United States and delivers those infringing goods to a retailer’s distribution center located at

4860 Menard Drive, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where ownership of the infringing goods is then

transferred to the retailer. Luminex’s infringing products are then resold and distributed

throughout Wisconsin, including this District, and throughout the United States.

6. Venue is proper in this District under 28 U.S.C. §§ 1391(b) and (c) because a

substantial part of the events giving rise to the claim occurred in this District and because

Luminex is subject to this Court’s personal jurisdiction.

THE CONTROVERSY

A. HUNTER’S PATENTS

7. Since 1886, Hunter and/or its predecessors-in-interest and licensees have been,

and continue to be, engaged in the business of designing ceiling fans and other products, having

them produced, and then selling them throughout the United States.

8. In or about 2015, Hunter designed, had manufactured, and started offering for sale

and selling its PERSEUS ceiling fan in the United States. Hunter’s PERSEUS ceiling fan,

including its housing, its light kit, and its blades, have distinctive and eye-catching designs that

are innovative in the ceiling fan industry. Hunter’s PERSEUS ceiling fan is depicted below:

9. Hunter has protected the innovative designs of its PERSEUS ceiling fan through

three different design patents duly issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office: U.S.

Patent No. D761,949 entitled “Ceiling Fan” issued on July 19, 2016 (“the ‘949 Patent”), U.S.

Patent No. D779,648 entitled “Ceiling Fan” issued on February 21, 2017 (“the ‘648 Patent”), and

U.S. Patent No. D811,578 entitled “Ceiling Fan Housing” issued on February 27, 2018 (“the

‘578 Patent”) (collectively, “the PERSEUS Design Patents”). Attached as Exhibits A-C are true

and correct copies of the ‘949 Patent, the ‘648 Patent, and the ‘578 Patent, respectively. The

PERSEUS Design Patents protect the ornamental features claimed in those patents, including the

3
Case: 3:18-cv-00344-wmc Document #: 1 Filed: 05/10/18 Page 4 of 10

housing and the blades. The ornamental features protected by the PERSEUS Design Patents are

embodied in Hunter’s PERSEUS ceiling fan.

10. Hunter is the assignee and lawful owner of each of the PERSEUS Design Patents.

B. LUMINEX’S INFRINGING CEILING FAN

11. Upon information and belief, Luminex manufactures in Taiwan and then imports

into the United States, and offers for sale and sells in the United States, ceiling fans under the

name TURN OF THE CENTURY® “Innovator” brand ceiling fans (hereinafter “Luminex’s

Infringing Ceiling Fans”) that incorporate the innovative designs embodied in each of Hunter’s

PERSEUS Design Patents. One example of Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fan is depicted below:

12. Upon information and belief, Luminex delivers Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling

Fans to Menard’s distribution center in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where ownership of Luminex’s

Infringing Ceiling Fans is transferred to Menard’s. Menard’s then sells and distributes

Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans throughout the United States in Menard’s stores and on its

website. Attached as Exhibit D is a depiction of Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans sold on

Menard’s website.

13. Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans misappropriate the patented designs protected

by Hunter’s PERSEUS Design Patents, including the same innovative designs of curved blades

and a floating ring housing. A side-by-side comparison of the designs claimed in each of

4
Case: 3:18-cv-00344-wmc Document #: 1 Filed: 05/10/18 Page 5 of 10

Hunter’s PERSEUS Design Patents and one of Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans is shown

below:

Figure 1: Hunter’s ‘949 Patent, Fig. 2 Figure 2: Hunter’s ‘648 Patent, Fig. 1

Figure 3: Hunter’s ‘578 Patent, Fig. 2 Figure 4: Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fan

14. An ordinary observer would consider Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans to be

substantially the same as the designs protected in each of Hunter’s PERSEUS Design Patents.

15. Luminex’s infringement of Hunter’s PERSEUS Design Patents provides Luminex

with unique designs for Luminex’s ceiling fans that are the result of Hunter’s innovation, not

Luminex’s. Luminex has not obtained permission from Hunter to use Hunter’s PERSEUS

Design Patents.

16. Upon information and belief, Luminex has in the past and continues today, to

willfully infringe Hunter’s PERSEUS Design Patents through at least the importation, offer for

sale and sale of Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans.

17. Luminex’s Infringing Ceiling Fans directly compete with Hunter’s PERSEUS

ceiling fan that embodies each of Hunter’s PERSEUS Design Patents.

required for the use of the Clerk of Court for the purpose of initiating the civil docket sheet. Consequently, a civil cover sheet is submitted to the Clerk of
Court for each civil complaint filed. The attorney filing a case should complete the form as follows:

I.(a) Plaintiffs-Defendants. Enter names (last, first, middle initial) of plaintiff and defendant. If the plaintiff or defendant is a government agency, use
only the full name or standard abbreviations. If the plaintiff or defendant is an official within a government agency, identify first the agency and
then the official, giving both name and title.
(b) County of Residence. For each civil case filed, except U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name of the county where the first listed plaintiff resides at the
time of filing. In U.S. plaintiff cases, enter the name of the county in which the first listed defendant resides at the time of filing. (NOTE: In land
condemnation cases, the county of residence of the "defendant" is the location of the tract of land involved.)
(c) Attorneys. Enter the firm name, address, telephone number, and attorney of record. If there are several attorneys, list them on an attachment, noting
in this section "(see attachment)".

II. Jurisdiction. The basis of jurisdiction is set forth under Rule 8(a), F.R.Cv.P., which requires that jurisdictions be shown in pleadings. Place an "X"
in one of the boxes. If there is more than one basis of jurisdiction, precedence is given in the order shown below.
United States plaintiff. (1) Jurisdiction based on 28 U.S.C. 1345 and 1348. Suits by agencies and officers of the United States are included here.
United States defendant. (2) When the plaintiff is suing the United States, its officers or agencies, place an "X" in this box.
Federal question. (3) This refers to suits under 28 U.S.C. 1331, where jurisdiction arises under the Constitution of the United States, an amendment
to the Constitution, an act of Congress or a treaty of the United States. In cases where the U.S. is a party, the U.S. plaintiff or defendant code takes
precedence, and box 1 or 2 should be marked.
Diversity of citizenship. (4) This refers to suits under 28 U.S.C. 1332, where parties are citizens of different states. When Box 4 is checked, the
citizenship of the different parties must be checked. (See Section III below; NOTE: federal question actions take precedence over diversity
cases.)

III. Residence (citizenship) of Principal Parties. This section of the JS 44 is to be completed if diversity of citizenship was indicated above. Mark this
section for each principal party.

IV. Nature of Suit. Place an "X" in the appropriate box. If there are multiple nature of suit codes associated with the case, pick the nature of suit code
that is most applicable. Click here for: Nature of Suit Code Descriptions.

V. Origin. Place an "X" in one of the seven boxes.


Original Proceedings. (1) Cases which originate in the United States district courts.
Removed from State Court. (2) Proceedings initiated in state courts may be removed to the district courts under Title 28 U.S.C., Section 1441.
When the petition for removal is granted, check this box.
Remanded from Appellate Court. (3) Check this box for cases remanded to the district court for further action. Use the date of remand as the filing
date.
Reinstated or Reopened. (4) Check this box for cases reinstated or reopened in the district court. Use the reopening date as the filing date.
Transferred from Another District. (5) For cases transferred under Title 28 U.S.C. Section 1404(a). Do not use this for within district transfers or
multidistrict litigation transfers.
Multidistrict Litigation – Transfer. (6) Check this box when a multidistrict case is transferred into the district under authority of Title 28 U.S.C.
Section 1407.
Multidistrict Litigation – Direct File. (8) Check this box when a multidistrict case is filed in the same district as the Master MDL docket.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NOT AN ORIGIN CODE 7. Origin Code 7 was used for historical records and is no longer relevant due to
changes in statue.

VI. Cause of Action. Report the civil statute directly related to the cause of action and give a brief description of the cause. Do not cite jurisdictional
statutes unless diversity. Example: U.S. Civil Statute: 47 USC 553 Brief Description: Unauthorized reception of cable service

VII. Requested in Complaint. Class Action. Place an "X" in this box if you are filing a class action under Rule 23, F.R.Cv.P.
Demand. In this space enter the actual dollar amount being demanded or indicate other demand, such as a preliminary injunction.
Jury Demand. Check the appropriate box to indicate whether or not a jury is being demanded.

VIII. Related Cases. This section of the JS 44 is used to reference related pending cases, if any. If there are related pending cases, insert the docket
numbers and the corresponding judge names for such cases.

Date and Attorney Signature. Date and sign the civil cover sheet.
