By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, 3M (MMM) has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan against New Jersey-based, Performance Supply LLC on Friday alleging that the company posed itself as an authorized vendor of 3M-branded N95 respirators and offered millions for sale to New York City officials at prices much higher than 3M’s list price.

The lawsuit stated that Performance Supply “offered to sell $45 million in N95 respirators to New York City officials at prices 500-600% over 3M’s list price.” As per the lawsuit, the New Jersey-based company offered about 7 million 3M masks to city procurers on March 30 at over $6, up to 600% of 3M’s list price.
