A district court rightly enjoined a Wyoming trial lawyer training program from purporting to be the “true board” of a competing program from which it had recently split, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit has held. But the court of appeals, while upholding the injunction against the splinter academy, found that the district court overreached by requiring the school to remove sculptures bearing the original program’s logos (The Trial Lawyers College v. Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College at Thunderhead Ranch, January 27, 2022, Bacharach, R.).

Case date: 27 January 2022
