TTAB Grants SSJR’s Motion to Dismiss Claims in Trademark Opposition

October 14, 2011 by in General

The United States Trademark Trial and Appeal Broad (TTAB) granted SSJR’s Motion to Dismiss three of the four claims in a pending opposition for failure to state a claim. The Motion successfully asserted that the Notice of Opposition was insufficient under Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to state a claim upon which relief could be based. As a result, Opposer’s claims of dilution and false association have been dismissed without leave to amend the complaint.
