A Bradenton, Florida company has sued Cup Solutions, Inc., an online seller of cups used for mixing drinks with shots of hard liquor, alleging that the Defendant’s “YAAGBOMB” cups, pictured below, infringe a patent owned by Hurricane Shooters, LLC, the Plaintiff. 

In the complaint, Hurricane Shooters alleges that it owns U.S. Patent 7,243,812, for a “Plural Chamber Drinking Cup,” and claims the cup was invented in 2005 by two Bradenton, Florida residents.  Some of the drawings from the patent appear below. 


The complaint, which seeks damages, injunctive relief, and attorneys’ fees, is pending before United States District Judge Richard A. Lazzara, of the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division.
