For our weekly SoCal IP Institute meeting on Monday, July 22nd, 2019, we will discuss the following case.
Grasshopper House, LLC v. Clean & Sober Media LLC (C.D. Cal. 2019)
Plaintiff and defendant were both involved in the business of rehab clinics. Defendant’s clinic was accused of posting false internet reviews regarding plaintiff’s clinic, in which reviewers claimed plaintiff’s clinic was of poor quality. In discovery, it was discovered that testimonials posted about plaintiff’s clinic were likely entirely fabricated. Defendant lost a jury trial and was ordered to pay damages under the lanham act as well as take down the reviews.
All are invited to join us on Monday July 22nd, 2019, at noon in our Westlake Village office. This activity is approved for 1 hour of MCLE credit. If you will be joining us, please RSVP to Elisha Manzur by 9 am Monday morning.
