In May, Troy Family Dental filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois with case number 3:18-cv-01041-DRH-DGW against Dr. William J. Waters DMD, doing business as Troy Dental Care, alleging the defendant violated the Lanham Act.
The plaintiff alleges Troy Dental Care used a similar name thereby confusing and misleading patients into taking both brands as associates causing trademark dilution and unfair competition.
The plaintiff claims that the infringement has caused damages to its business and loss of profits.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an injunction ordering the defendant to stop using the name Troy Dental Care, plus payment of all that is due.
