LOS ANGELES – A Colorado corporation has filed suit against a Glendale business alleging it is diverting business because it operates under a similar name.
United Shipping Inc. filed a complaint on Aug. 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against United Shipping Group Inc. and John Does 1-10 alleging trademark infringement.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it has suffered damages to its business as the result of its trademark being infringed. The suit states customers intending to the reach the plaintiff have instead contacted the defendant inadvertently. The plaintiff holds United Shipping Group Inc. and John Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly continued to use plaintiff's mark despite its demands to cease and desist using the mark.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunctive relief, all damages, treble damages and all legal fees. It is represented by Sean P. Paris of Pearson & Paris PC in Lakewood, Colorado and Laura L. Horton of Horton Law Firm in Northridge.
