Luxottica Group SpA et al. v. Shun Hao Gift Shop LLC et al. (18-cv-12374) and Super Discounts, Inc. et al. (18-cv-12375).

Eyeglass manufacturer Luxottica (and, with respect to Shun Hao, Oakley Inc.) filed trademark infringement suits against Hyde Park retailers Shun Hao and Super Discounts, accusing them of selling counterfeit Ray-Ban and Oakley sunglasses. Luxottica sells RAY-BAN sunglasses through LensCrafters, Pearle Vision and ILORI, as well as other entities throughout the world, and Oakley has likewise sold sunglasses bearing the OAKLEY or “O” mark through its own and affiliated stores worldwide. Plaintiffs have engaged, at least recently, in investigating retailers throughout the country and enforcing their trademarks through litigation, with a large number of suits having been filed elsewhere. Apparently, their investigators have now hit Massachusetts, with these suits at the vanguard. They bring a single count for trademark counterfeiting, and seek exemplary damages as well as monetary and injunctive relief.
