Thaler v. Vidal

Jaime Faith Edmondson, et al. v. Velvet Lifestyles, LLC

My Three Yorkies, LLC and Joy Dorfman appeal the district court’s final judgment, which awarded over 30 plaintiffs damages for false advertising and false endorsement under the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(a)(1)(B), following the entry of summary judgment on liability and a jury award of damages. With the benefit of oral argument, and following a review of the record, we reverse. There was not enough evidence to support the entry of summary judgment against Yorkies or Mrs. Dorfman, and as a result the damages awards cannot stand.
