EXPERIENCE
  • Barnes & Thornburg attorneys represented U-Haul International and obtained a permanent injunction from Northern District of Illinois Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer in favor of firm client, in a trademark infringement, false advertising, and non-competition case. The permanent injunction was entered against a competing storage company of U-Haul, TKG Storage-Mart Partners, which was using U-Haul trademarks on their websites and third-party blog websites to divert storage services away from U-Haul. TKG was also violating non-compete agreements by using U-Haul trucks and equipment at their storage facilities after they had breached their dealership agreements with U-Haul. After filing the Complaint and a Motion for Preliminary Injunction, TKG agreed to a permanent injunction for all of the relief U-Haul requested, including removing the U-Haul marks from numerous Web sites, plus agreeing to pay U-Haul a substantial monetary settlement. U-Haul Int'l, Inc. v. TKG Storagemart Partners, LP, Case No. 1:09cv4352 (N.D. Ill. 2009).
