It does seem that the San Diego Chargers moved quickly enough, and have existing rights in the CHARGERS mark that are strong enough, to establish its rights to the LOS ANGELES CHARGERS mark. What about the St. Louis Rams, who are assuredly moving back to Los Angeles? The Rams also recently filed trademark applications for LOS ANGELES RAMS and LA RAMS based on the teams intent to use those marks on a wide range of goods and services associated with running a football team.

A similar case has recently been filed in the Federal Court in Brooklyn, New York by two Grand Cherokee owners alleging that Fiat Chrysler should be forced to require all owners of these vehicles to stop operating the vehicles until they are fixed and should be financially compensated for their losses. This lawsuit states that even though Fiat Chrysler has stated that they will fix all of the problems by the end of the fourth quarter of 2016, past experience with recall repairs, such as the Jeeps that randomly caught fire, has shown that Fiat Chrysler is unable to complete repairs in a timely manner. … [Read more...] about Actor Anton Yelchin’s Parents File Lawsuit in Los Angeles for Defective Jeep Rollover
