Florida businessman Steven S. West was liable for over $913,000 in damages for infringing a service mark held by Omaha-based construction and mining company Kiewit Sons’, Inc., the U.S. Court of Appeals in St. Louis has decided (Peter Kiewit Sons’, Inc. v. Wall Street Equity Group, Inc., January 6, 2016, Kelly, J.). A federal district court in Nebraska did not err in entering default against West and issuing a damages award to the construction company after West repeatedly postponed damages hearings for purported reasons that the district court did not find credible.

A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.
