Dollar Shave Club Countersues Gillette

Santa Monica-based Dollar Shave Club has filed a lawsuit against razor giant Gillette, in the U.S. District Court in Delaware, to counter an earlier lawsuit filed by Gillette against the company on December 17th. Gillette claims Dollar Shave Club has infringed on one of its patents for self cleaning razors. Dollar Shave said "we are not intimidated" by the attempt to "thwart competition with litigation." Dollar Shave Club operates an online, subscription service which delivers razors and other products on a monthly basis.
