A California-based manufacturer

December 31, 2012

Defense of a California-based manufacturer sued over its use of the trademark “Grout Shield” along with its “Miracle Sealants Company” logo on products sold through Home Depot and other distributors. The New York-based plaintiff asserted claims of trademark and trade dress infringement, false designation of origin and unfair competition under federal and New York law.
