Sears, Roebuck and Co. is being sued by a WI, U.S.-based company that invented the RotoZip spiral saw. RRK Holding Co. has filed a lawsuit in Chicago, IL, U.S. federal court claiming that Sears stole secrets and undercut revenues, which eventually forced the company to sell out to Robert Bosch.

RotoZip founder Robert Kopras is claiming that Sears used RotoZip drywall cutting tool designs to produce its own All-in-One Cutting Tool under the Craftsman label, while under-pricing the original RotoZip and preventing it from releasing its "next generation" tool in Sears stores.

Mr. Kopras also claims that the release of the All-in-One Cutting Tools cut into the company's sales, forcing it to sell out last year to Mount Prospect, IL, U.S.-based Robert Bosch Tool Corp., the North American tool-making division of Germany's Robert Bosch. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Bosch continues to produce and sell RotoZip tools.

While Sears declined to comment on the case, the company is expected to file a legal response by Aug. 3, 2004.
