(Bloomberg) — Icon Laser Solutions LLC of Fort Worth, Texas, filed three patent-infringement suits in the past month against clothing makers including Levi Strauss & Co. over a process for using lasers to mark and fade textiles.

While Icon is asking for money damages in all three cases, filed in Dallas federal court, it hasn’t requested a court order barring further use of the technology.

Other defendants are Gap Inc. and VF Corp. VF didn’t respond immediately to e-mailed requests seeking comment on the claims.
