Obtaining and Defending Against Injunctions in Trademark Cases    

This webinar will begin with a brief explanation of the basis for granting injunctive relief, including the Lanham Act and the common law. Ketan Bhirud and Greg Gemignani will discuss what showing a trademark owner is required to make in order to obtain injunctive relief, specifically discussing the factors a court considers when determining likelihood of success on the merits.


Additionally, presenters will discuss the following various factors a court considers when determining the proper scope of an injunction, including:

  • The intent of the defendant;
  • The strength of the mark being infringed;
  • Whether the value of the mark is being diluted;
  • Territorial issues relating to the injunction; and
  • Laches.

High School Mock Trial Judges Needed


Nevada's high school mock trial teams are looking for volunteers to serve as scoring and presiding judges during their upcoming Mock Trial State Competition. To volunteer, contact Kathleen Dickinson via e-mail at or by phone at (702) 317-1408.


The competition will take place at the Regional Justice Center on Friday, March 7 and Saturday, February 8. Volunteers may sign up for just the afternoon sessions, morning session or both. The orientation on Friday begins at 2:30 p.m. with Round 1 beginning at 3 p.m. and Round 2 beginning at 5 p.m. On Saturday, the rounds begin at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for judges on both days.


Scoring judges rate the performance of student attorneys and witnesses on both sides of the case; presiding judges play the role that real judges hold in actual trials.
