The Gillette Co. has filed a second patent infringement lawsuit against rival Schick-Wilkinson Sword.

The latest case, filed Dec. 5 in U.S. District Court in Boston, MA, U.S. alleges Schick's Intuition women's razor infringes on two Gillette patents -- one pertaining to the organizer, or tray the razor sits in, and a second pertaining to blade packaging.

In a previous lawsuit, Boston-based Gillette alleged Schick's new four-bladed Quattro razor also infringed on Gillette's patents. Gillette's request for a preliminary injunction blocking the sale of Quattro in that case is being considered by a judge.

"We vigorously defend our intellectual property," Gillette spokesman Eric Kraus said.

A spokesman for St. Louis-based Energizer Holdings, which owns Schick-Wilkinson Sword, did not comment.

The latest suit seeks unspecified damages. (Associated Press)
