Bloomberg Law writes, “The Supreme Court nixed a win for Marcel Fashions in its decades-long dispute with Lucky Brand, tossing a novel “defense preclusion” backed by the New York-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

Lucky Brand, a jeans maker, can invoke a defense it didn’t in a prior infringement lawsuit because the trademarks at issue and time frame of alleged infringement were different, the high court ruled unanimously.”

Director Monica Riva Talley was quoted in the article “Justices Toss New Defense Preclusion in Lucky’s Trademark War (2),” published by Bloomberg Law.
