Clothing Designer And Wholesaler Jaysix USA Wins Summary Judgment In Trademark Infringement Lawsuit, Reports Quintana Law Group, APC

For Immediate Release

LOS ANGELES/EWORLDWIRE/Sep. 19, 2007 ---

A Los Angeles federal judge has granted summary judgment and dismissed all claims against Jaysix USA, Inc., a designer and wholesaler of several prominent men's clothing lines, in a case alleging trademark infringement, unfair business practices, and other causes of action, brought by competitor DSPT International, Inc.

The case was originally filed by plaintiff DSPT in January 2006. Seeking close to half a million dollar in damages, DSPT claimed Jaysix, among other things, infringed on several trademarks associated with DSPT's clothing labels called EQ and Equilibrio.

Short-circuiting a costly and protracted trial, Judge Otis Wright II, in an August 17th decision, ruled that "aside from [DSPT's] bare allegation, DSPT offers no evidence that Jaysix ever used, utilized or otherwise infringed" on DSPT's marks. He also noted that the DSPT provided "no evidence to demonstrate that Jaysix intended to interfere with or disrupt DSPT's relationships with its customers." DSPT's claims for unfair business practices and cybersquatting were also summarily decided in Jaysix's favor.

"We are extremely pleased that the federal court agreed with what we have been stating firmly from day one: that the case against Jaysix totally lacked any merit," said Guy Prudhomme, chief executive officer of the Fredericksburg, Virginia-based company.

Representing Jaysix were intellectual property attorneys Andres Quintana and Daniel Talyor of the Quintana Law Group, APC. "Once again, the best offense against unfounded trademark infringement claims is an unyielding defense," said Quintana.
