The race to sue over leggings continues

Posted On: Sep. 30, 2022 10:40 AM CST


A federal judge in New York on Thursday dismissed Peloton Interactive Inc.’s lawsuit against sports fashion brand Lululemon, which had sued the exercise equipment maker accusing it of infringing on its clothing patents for its bras and exercise leggings.

Lululemon, which sent a cease-and-desist letter and later filed a lawsuit in 2021, appears in the lead over accusations that Peloton created and marketed lookalike apparel, according to Reuters. That lawsuit is still in the race.

In the countersuit, which was dismissed Thursday, Peloton sought a declaration that it had not violated any trademarks. In the ruling, the federal judge described the countersuit as “an anticipatory action that warrants dismissal,” according to the wire service.

Peloton declined to comment.
