Coach, Inc. and Coach Services, Inc. sue Diggz Clothing LLC and Lori Harth for trademark and trade dress infringement

Lafayette, IN – Trademark lawyers for Coach, Inc. of New York, NY, and Coach Services, Inc. of Jacksonville, FL filed a trademark infringement suit alleging Diggz Clothing, LLC and Lori Harth of Lafayette, IN infringed various Coach trademark registrations which are registered with the US Trademark Office. Coach had sued Diggz in March 2010, then settled the suit for $6,500, and an agreement to stop selling “Accused Products.” However, the latest suit alleges that Diggz breached the settlement agreement, and re-asserts a variety of trademark, copyright, trade dress and unfair competition related claims.

Coach files many infringement suits, and a list of their earlier suits in Indiana in 2010 is at the end of this posting.

Practice Tip: Coach has a reputation for demanding very one-sided settlement agreements. The earlier settlement agreement is attached as an exhibit to the complaint which you can see below.

This case has been assigned to Judge Joseph Van Bokkelen and Magistrate Judge Paul Cherry in the Northern District of Indiana, and assigned case no. 4:10-cv-00100-JVB-PRC.Complaint – Coach v. Diggz
