M Ship Co. Files Patent Infringement Suit

Monday, July 31, 2006
M Ship Co. filed a patent infringement lawsuit against ICE Marine Ltd., a UK company, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, to enforce patent rights covering its M-hull boat technology. The lawsuit alleges that ICE Marine has infringed M Ship Co.’s patent for its M-Shaped Boat Hull and has induced others to infringe the patent in the U.S. The M-hull, a non-conventional air entrapment hull design, was invented by M Ship Co.’s founders, Chuck Robinson and Bill Burns. M Ship Co. recently completed its delivery of the military demonstrator, Stiletto, an 80-ft. twin M-hull design. M Ship Co.’s lead counsel in the lawsuit is Richard A. Clegg of the San Diego law firm Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek. Harvey W. Gurland, Jr., of Duane Morris LLP’s Miami office, will be local co-counsel.
