3M’s Latest N95 Complaint Targets Wisconsin Price Gouging

Via Bloomberg Law

“The complaint is the latest in a volley of trademark infringement claims filed by 3M targeting companies for engaging in N95 price gouging during the Covid-19 crisis. 3M has also sued alleged price gougers in New York, California, Texas, and Florida.”

“3M said Scott Patella, a registered agent of Hulomil LLC, contacted Wisconsin’s Department of Administration offering a minimum of 250,000 N95 masks at the ‘grossly inflated’ price of $3.75 per mask, which 3M says is 250 to 350% above its list price. Patella allegedly told the department he had ‘direct access’ to 3M, and promised to eliminate ‘multiple middle men’ from the deal.”
