Represented Clif Bar in a trade dress case brought by Kind. Kind filed suit and moved for an expedited preliminary injunction to prevent client Clif Bar from launching its new premium CLIF MOJO healthy snack bars in see-through packaging that allegedly infringed Kind’s trade dress. Less than a week after the five-day hearing concluded, Judge Kimba Wood issued a 25-page written opinion denying Kind’s motion in full. The judge found that Kind’s alleged trade dress was not distinctive (and thus not protectable), that there was no likelihood of consumer confusion between the parties’ packaging, and that Kind had not demonstrated irreparable injury or a balance of hardships tipping in its favor. Kind has taken an appeal to the Second Circuit.
