KETTLE COMPANY THINKS POT SHOULD BE LEGAL

AFTER BEING SUED BY ITS MAIN COMPETITOR,  LOCAL COOKWARE COMPANY IS IN COURT SEEKING HELP TO GET IT'S NEW MAGIC POT ON THE MARKET IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SHOPPERS

BRIDGEPORT

The pot in question is black
and is electric powered.
Local pot and pan company Kettle Black is back in court once again after winning a decision last year giving it the right to call itself Kettle Black.  The plaintiff in that court case, Ultra Fried, had argued that Kettle couldn't call itself Black because black is too common a color of many, if not all pots and pans. In the end the court sided with Kettle and allowed it to call itself black, thus the company name.

Now Ultra Fried is back in court trying to win an injunction to halt Kettle Black from selling a new electric cooking pot they've named the Electro Magic Pot. Ultra Fried is accusing them of patient infringement and has asked the court to side with them in calling this pot illegal.

The judge who was given this case, the honorable Les Flyy, recused himself after admitting he had tried the pot and would have trouble ruling fairly.  Finding a new judge before Christmas who has not tried the pot may be difficult, as Christmas is right around the corner.

Ultra Fry hopes to keep the pot off the street for as long as possible, but realizes that the popularity of the pot in its own test kitchen, has them thinking they may be fighting a losing battle.   Dave Taylor will follow this story wherever it takes him and report back.
