Lane Capital Mgmt. Inc. v. Lane Capital Mgmt. Inc.
15 F. Supp.2d 389 (S.D.N.Y. 1998), aff'd, 1999 U.S. App. LEXIS 22965 (2d Cir. Sep. 22, 1999)
We successfully represented the plaintiff in a case of first impression in the Second Circuit on the issue of when a trademark, "Lane," is primarily merely a surname. In affirming the District Court's grant of summary judgment enjoining the defendant from using the Lane Capital Management name, the Second Circuit set the standard for determination of the surname issue.
