Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a trademark infringement action alleging improper use of a trailer hitch designer's name, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where: 1) the complaint did not allege facts sufficient to show that defendant's use of the name created a likelihood of confusion as to the source of its products; and 2) the fair use defense applied because the use of the name was descriptive.
