In a complaint filed in US District Court in Manhattan, Nike accused Lululemon of having “summarily” rejected its demand that it stop infringing six patents.

The lawsuit seeks triple damages for Lululemon’s alleged willful infringement, and a variety of other remedies.

The complaint also names Curiouser Products, which operates as Mirror, as a defendant.
