Feb. 11, 2013 - PRLog -- Casey Griffith, a senior partner at Klemchuk Kubasta ( LLP (KK LLP), will co-facilitate a discussion on the recent Yums v. Nike decision at the American Bar Association’s Intellectual Property Litigation Roundtable. Taking place at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 19 in the Tower Club, 1601 Elm Street, 48th Floor, Dallas, the roundtable is an informal opportunity for participants to discuss current issues in intellectual property litigation.  

In Yums v. Nike, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously upheld the dismissal of Yums’ counterclaims seeking to invalidate Nike’s federally registered trademark for Nike’s Air Force 1 shoe. The case discussion, which will also be co-facilitated by Justin Kimble of Shore Chan Bragalone, will explore the boundaries of a trademark owner’s ability to control the existence of a justicible case or controversy through the use of covenants not to sue.

“This discussion aims to stimulate constructive conversation through a series of poignant questions, varying viewpoints and audience participation,” said Griffith. “The implications of Yums v. Nike are important to attorneys in our field, and may even set precedents in future trademark litigation. We’re looking forward to the sharing of ideas from this roundtable, and encourage all IP professionals to participate in the discussion.”

As a senior partner with KK LLP, Griffith’s practice encompasses all areas of intellectual property which involve a wide-range of technologies, with a concentration on litigation of patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.

To RSVP to the Quarterly ABA Roundtable, contact Tiffany Thomas by Friday, Feb. 15 at or 713-547-4049.  Lunch and one hour CLE are provided at no cost.
