Munro v. Lucy Activewear, Inc.
August 10, 2018
Bruce Munro and Bruce Munro Studio (collectively “Munro”) appeal the district court’s dismissal of his complaint against Lucy Activewear, Inc., Lucy Apparel, LLC, VF Outdoor, Inc., and VF Corporation (collectively “Lucy”) and the denial of his motion to amend his complaint based on a finding of futility. Munro argues that the district court erred when it found that his tortious interference claim was preempted by the Copyright Act and that his proposed amended trade dress, trademark, and fraud claims were futile. We disagree with Munro except as to his trademark claim. Thus, we affirm in part and reverse and remand in part.
