Fulbright & Jaworski has agreed to represent two U.S.-based nonprofits who claim a French company is blocking rivals from producing a nut-based food product that is well-suited for feeding malnourished children, according to this Associated Press story and the lead Fulbright lawyer on the matter.
The U.S. companies, Mama Cares Foundation and Breedlove Foods Inc., filed suit in federal district court in Washington, D.C., against Nutriset, based in Malaunay, France. The nonprofits claim the company’s patent covering the nut-based product is invalid because it is so broad as to be unenforceable, court records show. The plaintiffs further claim Nutriset has sent them warning letters promising litigation should they attempt to produce a similar product, according to court records and Robert Chiaviello, the lead Fulbright lawyer on the case.
