THOMAS J. LIPTON, INC. v. LERMAN

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, DISTRICT COLUMBIA.


July 14, 1951.

THOMAS J. LIPTON, Inc.
v.
LERMAN et al.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: MCGUIRE

McGUIRE, District Judge.

Judgment for plaintiff.

 Counterclaim dismissed.

 Defendants have established no common law mark, since that used by them has acquired no secondary meaning and is purely descriptive. I doubt further that it could acquire a secondary meaning in the sense that term has been defined by the Supreme Court. Apart from that, the defendants have failed it would seem to actively merchandise the product for at least the last three years.

 Counsel will prepare proper order.
