Cary, NC, United States – January 13, 2016 – NoScope Glasses is currently embroiled in an ongoing legal battle with competitor Gunnar Optiks. We feel that Gunnar’s lawsuit against us is meritless and an attempt to muscle a fair competitor out of the gaming glasses market. While the case is still ongoing, NoScope announces today that the courts have upheld NoScope’s positions and requests regarding venue disputes.
Judges in both North Carolina and California have supported NoScope’s request for a declaratory action in North Carolina. The Honorable Chief Judge Barry Ted Moskowitz of the United States District Court stated in the California order that “…The record suggests that [NoScope] brought its declaratory action in good faith…” and that “…Gunnar’s argument… distorts the purpose of the Declaratory Judgment Act.”
The North Carolina court has supported this decision, issuing an order from the Honorable Senior Judge James C. Fox of the United States District Court that states that “…Gunnar’s demands for settlement were unreasonable and coercive…” and that “Gunnar’s laundry list of demands and threats… falls far short of a good faith attempt at negotiation.”
