United States District Judge Keith Ellison issued a memorandum opinion on Friday, October 14, setting out findings of fact and conclusions of law. He effectively granted the University of Houston’s motion for a preliminary injunction in a trademark lawsuit it lodged against South Texas College of Law after the latter decided to change its name to Houston College of Law.
UH claimed that South Texas College of Law intentionally and willfully infringed upon the former’s intellectual property and the latter committed violations of unfair competition laws in the state of Texas. In response, South Texas College of Law argued that the word “Houston” is not the exclusive property of the UH System.
