Firm Wins Dismissal of Trademark Action
D&C successfully moved to dismiss a trademark action filed against its client in the District of Nevada. The action involved claims that the firm’s client infringed the plaintiff’s trademarks by bidding on them as “key words” for search engines such as Yahoo! D&C moved to dismiss on a litany of grounds, including that the Nevada court lacked jurisdiction over the defendants, and that the complaint failed to state a claim against any of the named defendants. On April 6, 2017, the Nevada court dismissed the action in its entirety, with prejudice.
