Super producer Dr. Dre’s company Beats Electronics LLC has been hit with a lawsuit by Signeo USA, a rival producer of headphones and high end audio products.
The lawsuit, which was filed on June 2nd in The United States District Court for the Northern District of California, also names Monster Cable as a defendant. Signeo is being represented by Lan Kennedy-Davis of Davis and Kennedy in Lakewood Florida, who did not return calls about the lawsuit.
While Beats Electronics is known for Dr. Dre’s popular headphone line Beats by Dre, Signeo USA is known for marketing Ludacris’ brand of headphones, Soul.
Beats Electronics was founded by Dr. Dre and Interscope CEO Jimmy Iovine in 2006.
