Order on Disgorgement of Profits

The attached Order was entered on November 22, 2016 awarding Variety Stores, Inc. approximately $32 million dollars following a disgorgement of profits trial arising out of a case of willful trademark infringement by Walmart. Variety is represented by Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick and Thad Adams, Alex Long and Christina Trimmer tried the case for Variety. A separate trial to determine the amount of actual damages will be tried in 2017. We surmise these trademark issues discussed in the Order will be of interest to businesses that own trademarks.
