Spectrum Association Management of Texas, L.L.C. (“Spectrum”) sued Lifetime HOA Management, L.L.C. (“Lifetime”) and Jay Tuttle (collectively the “Lifetime Defendants”) for trademark violations under the Lanham Act. Spectrum was awarded statutory damages following a bench trial. The district court declined to award Spectrum attorneys’ fees.
The Lifetime Defendants now appeal the damages award and the district court’s admission of a witness’s deposition testimony at trial. Spectrum cross-appeals the district court’s decision not to award attorneys’ fees. For the following reasons, we AFFIRM IN PART and REVERSE AND REMAND IN PART.
