Yellow Fellow Safety Sign at Heart of Patent Infringement Suit

New Albany, Indiana – Pro se Plaintiff, Eddie M. Green Jr., of Jeffersonville, Indiana, filed suit in the Southern District of Indiana alleging that Defendants, Chain Vault Inc. and its owner, Ara Yavruyan, infringed his rights in United States Patent No. 9,940,796 (the “‘796 Patent”) for “Yellow Fellow Safety Sign.” The ‘796 Patent, issued on April 10, 2018, claims a portable wet floor sign made for the blind and hearing impaired with a motion sensor, a rotating camera, a voice box, a moisture sensor, and various flashing lights. According to the Complaint, Plaintiff’s “business start-up has been stopped” and his product’s name has been damaged due to the Defendants’ infringing actions. Mr. Green estimates the minimum amount in controversy to be $2.8 million.

The case was assigned to District Judge Tanya W. Pratt and Magistrate Judge Debra McVicker Lynch in the Southern District and assigned Case 4:20-cv-00052-TWP-DML.
