IP Alert: Supreme Court Holds Federal Food Labeling Laws Do Not Preclude Lanham Act Suits

June 12, 2014

Today, in POM Wonderful LLC v. Coca-Cola Co., the U.S. Supreme Court held that beverage company POM Wonderful may maintain a Lanham Act suit against Coca-Cola over alleged misleading juice labeling. The decision reverses the Ninth Circuit’s ruling that another federal statute, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, precludes Lanham Act challenges.

Fitch Even attorneys are reviewing the POM Wonderful decision and will report back in an upcoming alert.
