The judge granted a request by the American Red Cross to dismiss a claim in J&J’s lawsuit contending that the relief organization had promised not to engage in certain commercial activity, including licensing the red cross symbol to others and selling first-aid products in competition with J&J, according to court papers. J&J had sued American Red Cross in August over the use by the relief group and its partners of J&J’s trademark red cross logo on first aid kits, hand sanitizer and medical gloves sold to the public.
That has to leave a mark.
There’s no decision, just this order promising one.
UPDATE: Here’s that opinion.
