Attorneys React to High Court's Pom v. Coke Lanham Act Ruling
- IP Law360
Monica Riva Talley was quoted in an article in IP Law360 discussing the Supreme Court's ruling in POM Wonderful LLC v. The Coca Cola Company. The verdict stated that federal regulations allow competitors to bring Lanham Act claims alleging unfair competition resulting from false advertising on food and beverage labels.
When "viewed in conjunction with the March ruling in the Lexmark case, the decision in Pom v. Coke clearly communicates that the Supreme Court is unwilling to unduly limit the ability to bring false advertising claims under the Lanham Act," Ms. Talley said. "Taken together, these decisions strengthen the ability of businesses to protect against statements that mislead consumers."
