North Allegheny School District and a Lawrence County silk screening company violated a Michigan company's exclusive right to produce and sell T-shirts and other memorabilia during the 2012 state football championships, the company claims in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday.

Lighthouse Sportswear Inc. of Grand Ledge, Mich., claims it lost more than $15,000 in revenue because the school district and business violated its exclusive contract with the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association.

The company is suing Brian J. Caiazza of Cazzco Screen Printing in New Wilmington, the school district and its athletic director, Robert Bozzuto.

Caiazza declined comment. Neither Bozzuto nor the district's solicitor could be reached for comment.

Tedd Nesbit, the attorney for Lighthouse Sportswear, couldn't be reached. The company is seeking compensatory and punitive damages and, because it's suing under trademark law, a tripling of the damages.
