June 13, 2014Quotes & Mentions

On June 12, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the Ninth Circuit’s ruling, finding that U.S. Food and Drug Administration rules can co-exist with the federal false advertising statute. The 8-0 decision in POM Wonderful LLC v. The Coca Cola Company paved the way for Pom’s Lanham Act suit against Coke to move forward. Dinsmore’s IP Attorneys quickly communicated the impact this ruling may have on businesses.
