UPDATE: Both Baby Jogger and Britax told me that the current B-Agiles and BOB Motions will not be pulled from the shelves, and they will continue to be manufactured. It is not clear exactly what will be changed on them...whether they will continue to employ the use of the "Quick-Fold" technology and pay BJ a licensing fee, or whether they will change the way the strollers fold. I will continue to update this, as I receive more information.
UPDATE #2: Britax just told me this: “This will not impact our future business in any way and we will continue to manufacture and sell the BRITAX B-Agile and BOB Motion strollers. Business as usual. We are pleased with the outcome.”
Since both parties have agreed not to discuss specific details, we still don't know what changes the models will have to undergo, or when they will be implemented. Also, some of our Strollerland members are wondering if Graco will be next, since some of their models employ a very similar "Quick-Fold."
Baby Jogger®, creator of innovative strollers such as the City Mini™ and City Select®, today announced that the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Case No. 2:12cv452-RAJ-LRL, has approved a Consent Judgment and Permanent Injunction in Baby Jogger’s favor in its lawsuit against Britax Child Safety, Inc. (“Britax”). The suit involved Baby Jogger’s patented and proprietary Quick-Fold Technology and asserted claims against Britax for patent infringement, trade dress infringement, and unfair competition.
