Hooters Out In The Cold

About three weeks ago, MIPTC told you that Hooters had sued a competitor, Ker's Winghouse, over it's "intellectual property."

Turns out that the federal court just dismissed Hooter's action.

According to Findlaw, "U.S. District Judge Anne Conway dismissed the case Thursday before it went to the jury, finding that 'no reasonable juror' could confuse waitresses for Ker's WingHouse and those for Hooters. Ker's WingHouse waitresses are dressed in all-black shorts and tops, while Hooters girls wear orange shorts and white tops."

Hooters wanted $4 million in damages. To add insult to injury, the judge ordered Hooters to pay Ker's $1.2 million.
