business news in context, analysis with attitude

Procter & Gamble has sued McLane Co., the distribution company, claiming that it is selling products that too closely resemble its brands. The suit asks that retailers be forced to take the products off store shelves, and that McLane pay unspecified damages.

McLane is owned by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway, which bought it from Wal-Mart in 2003.
