Thad successfully defends trademark judgment in the Dallas Court of Appeals!

Congratulations to KD&P’s Thad Spalding, and trial counsel—Marty Rose and Bryan Rose of Rose Walker—for successfully defending a common law trademark infringement, trademark dilution, and unfair competition jury verdict on behalf of their client, Premier Pools—a North Texas, family-owned pool builder who had been in business for almost 30 years before an out-of-state licensor started to unfairly compete in the North Texas market using a nearly identical name.  After Marty and Bryan convinced a Dallas jury that the licensor’s and Texas licensee’s conduct constituted trademark infringement, trademark dilution, and unfair competition, Premier Pools was awarded lost profits, disgorged profits, and permanent injunctive relief.  The licensor and Texas licensee appealed and, on August 12, 2016, the Dallas Court of Appeals affirmed all of the jury’s findings and the bulk of the trial court’s judgment.  You can read the Dallas court’s opinion here.
