von Drehle Corporation v. Georgia Pacific Consumer Products, LP

13-41 4th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2013

Issue: Whether the court of appeals erred in refusing to follow the holdings of the Eighth and Sixth Circuits involving identical trademark litigation and not giving those rulings preclusive effect – and doing so in ways that disregard the district courts’ inherent authority to consider preclusion and do serious violence to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15 and the proper standards other circuits routinely follow when reviewing decisions to permit amendments of pleadings.
