Patent Litigation on Filters.
The suit against users of filters manufactured by the O. H. Jewell Filter Company of Chicago, who are represented by the Morrison-Jewell Filter Company of New York (the MorrisonAlien Co. having gone out of existence) and also by Fairbanks, Morse & Co., selling agents, is being pushed in the courts. The suit was brought for infringment and damages. When the patents have been sustained all the users of these infringing devices will be compelled to make settlement for damages. It is proper that all interested parties should be notified of their responsibility in this matter, for those controlling the filter patents in litigation certainly would not have brought suit against responsible users unless they felt confident that their claims would be sustained.
