New York Federal Judge Denies Relief In Dispute Over Fashion Week Marks
(August 17, 2016, 1:24 PM EDT) -- NEW YORK — Less than two months after denying a temporary restraining order in a dispute over the acronym “NYFW” — short for “New York Fashion Week” — and other trademarks, a New York federal judge on Aug. 12 again concluded that an infringement plaintiff is unlikely to succeed on the merits of its claim (Fashion Week Inc. v. Council of Fashion Designers of America Inc., et al., No. 16-5079, S.D. N.Y.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 107358).
