HOOVER FILES COUNTERSUIT AGAINST ROYAL

 NORTH CANTON, Ohio, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hoover Company filed a countersuit against Royal Appliance Manufacturing Company (NYSE: RAM) yesterday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio charging Royal with false and misleading advertising, defamation, product disparagement, interference with business relationships, and abuse of process.
 Hoover's countersuit states that Hoover has developed a cleaning efficiency rating system that indicates a vacuum cleaner's cleaning effectiveness per amp and that the Hoover rating system is a far more helpful guide to consumers than the amp rating system.
 Hoover's countersuit also states that Royal has engaged in false, misleading and deceptive advertising, marketing and promotional tactics with an intent to interfere with Hoover's current and prospective business relationships.
 Royal has also wrongfully and falsely conveyed to dealers and others that Hoover has been enjoined from conducting its cleaning effectiveness per amp campaign, the countersuit states.
 Hoover also charges that the institution of the lawsuit by Royal against Hoover was done with malice to discredit Hoover in the marketplace and was disparaging to The Hoover Company and its president.
 The Hoover suit seeks compensatory and punitive damages.
