WEBER-STEPHEN PRODUCTS CO. OBTAINS COURT ORDER

 CHICAGO, May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Weber-Stephen Products Co., the manufacturer of the famous Weber(R) kettle grills, obtained a court order prohibiting Menard's retail stores from selling infringing look- alike grills in its stores. Upon entering a consent judgment against Menard's, the federal district court in Chicago, Ill., found Menard's in contempt of a prior injunction entered by the court after suit was filed in 1985. The result in this case is consistent with a line of court orders recognizing Weber's rights in the distinctive configuration of Weber's kettle grill.
 Over the past several years, Weber has actively policed the market, and the company is currently working with the U.S. Customs Service to prevent the importation of infringing look-alike grills. Weber has also taken legal action on several occasions to stop the unauthorized importation and sale of its famous kettle configuration which is protected by federal trademark registrations.
