When Litigating Preliminary Injunctions, Do Not "Do the Stroll"!


Or be the victim of a withering yet on-the-money remark from Judge Rosenbaum:
This is an interlocutory appeal from a district court’s denial of a preliminary injunction in a reverse-confusion trademark dispute concerning the mark “FyreTV.”  The district court denied the injunction because, among other reasons, the plaintiff pursued its preliminary-injunction motion with the urgency of someone out on a meandering evening stroll rather than someone in a race against time.  Because the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying the injunction, we affirm.
Snap!

  1. No wonder their lawyers call themselves "Not Your Ordinary Law Firm".

  2. That's The Stroll by The Diamonds. Their lead singer, David Somerville, died about a year ago. Great personality. They also sang Little Darlin, a well know doo wop number.
