PHILADELPHIA — A Pennsylvania company is suing Lice Lifters of Harrisburg LLC and owner Latoya Wright, citing alleged breach of contract and unfair competition.
Lice Lifters Franchising LLC filed a complaint on April 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants alleging that they used plaintiff's trade dress outside the scope of their franchise agreement, which was terminated.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that its company was damaged due to its trade dress being used without authorization. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly used a trade dress that is confusingly similar to the plaintiff's, which then caused confusion among consumers.
The defendants are also allegedly breaching the franchise agreement, which barred them from competing with the franchising company after termination of the contract.
The plaintiff seeks to declare that the defendant have violated the in-term and post-term restrictions in the franchise agreement not to compete, injunctive relief, court costs and any further relief this court grants. It is represented by Todd J. Leon and Evan M. Goldman of Hill Wallack LLP in Princeton, New Jersey.
