SC Johnson in legal battle over scents
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

Wisconsin's family company is in a legal battle with one of its competitors.

Last December, SC Johnson of Racine sued the Dial Corp., saying its Renuzit air freshener infringed on a Johnson patent by putting out three scents.

Now, Dial is suing Johnson, claiming its Glade Plug-In Scented Oil air freshener infringes on a patent that Dial holds.

The new lawsuit was filed in Phoenix.

Johnson's suit is pending in federal court in Madison.

Dial is located in Scottsdale, Ariz., and is owned by Henkel AG of Germany.

Henkel vice president Cindy Demers says the company needed to file suit to protect its intellectual property.
