Wimberly Files Lawsuit Alleging Theft of Intellectual Property

Indianapolis, Indiana – Jill Wimberly, et al. of Indianapolis, IN, have filed, pro se (on their own behalf, rather than being represented by a lawyer), a lawsuit alleging that numerous large corporations, as well as the U.S. Patent Office, violated their “civil rights” in misappropriating the plaintiffs’ intellectual property. In particular, the plaintiffs claim to have designed a type of adult underwear for those experiencing incontinence which allegedly resembles products marketed by Procter & Gamble and Kimberly-Clark.

This case has been assigned to Chief Judge Richard L. Young and Magistrate Judge Tim A. Baker in the Southern District of Indiana, and assigned case no. 1:10-cv-00930-RLY-TAB.

Practice Tip: Intellectual property applications and litigation can be quite complex and usually require the assistance of experienced counsel in order to maximize protection. There is no relationship between patent infringement and “civil rights.” This complaint will probably be dismissed by the Court relatively quickly. Among the bizarre types of “relief” requested is for the Court to issue four patents to the plaintiff. The court does not have jurisdiction to issue patents.Complaint – Wimberly v. Invent
