Last year Kirby filed a second lawsuit against Farzad Rastegar and LaserPerformance alleging infringement of the BRUCE KIRBY® trademark due to Defendants’ online offer to sell a “Kirby Fishing Set.” Defendants made this offer despite litigating their unauthorized use of the same trademark in a related case since 2013.

Defendants filed motions to dismiss Kirby’s new infringement claims, but the District Court of Connecticut agreed with WHIPgroup that Kirby’s trademark infringement claims can proceed to trial.
