On March 29, 2019, Judge Morrison England of the Eastern District of California denied a Rule 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss filed by defendants Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (“Walmart”) and American International Industries, Inc. (“AI”) (collectively, “Defendants”) in Stiles v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., et al., No. 2:14-cv-02234-MCE-DMC, 2019 WL 1429651 (E.D. Cal. Mar. 29, 2019). Defendants argued that Plaintiff Sharidan Stiles (“Plaintiff” or “Stiles”)—the inventor, patent-holder, and manufacturer of a disposable beauty styling razor alleged to have been sold at Walmart’s stores from 2006 to 2012 (the “Stiles Razor”)—failed to sufficiently allege claims under Section 1 of the Sherman Act and the Cartwright Act.
