Lucky Brand Dungarees Inc. v. Marcel Fashions Group Inc.

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
18-1086 2d Cir. Jan 13, 2020
Tr.Aud.
May 14, 2020 9-0 Sotomayor OT 2019

Holding: Because the trademark action at issue challenged different conduct—and raised different claims—from an earlier action between the parties, Marcel cannot preclude Lucky Brand from raising new defenses, including a defense that Lucky Brand failed to press fully in the earlier suit.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Sotomayor on May 14, 2020.
