Loses Its Lawsuit Against GW
After losing four straight court decisions
in two years, TrialGraphix has given up its federal court battle
to stop GW from using the generic, descriptive phrase "trial
The end came after Federal District Court
Magistrate Stephen Brown ruled in GW's favor on a motion for
summary judgment. TrialGraphix filed an appeal, but withdrew
it Sept. 29, 2000 after the magistrate declined to award attorneys
fees to The Graphic Witness.
TrialGraphix previously lost all three
attempts to get a temporary restraining order against GW.
Trial Graphix sued GW over the use of the
phrase "trial graphics" on a single page in this web
site. The phrase was used in the headline "Trial graphics:
Concept to completion." TrialGraphix CEO Steve Stolberg
said under oath that the widely used phrase "has no meaning."
GW was represented by two terrific attorneys:
Kevin Crosby and Ken Joyce of Brinkley, McNerney, Morgan, Solomon
& Tatum, LLP, Fort Lauderdale. (954) 522-2200.
The losing side was represented by Eric
Isicoff of Isicoff & Ragatz, Miami.
