There were 138 trademark cases filed in the Northern District during 2007, a 9% decrease from the 151 patent cases filed in 2006. Of those 138 cases, nearly half, 66, were disposed of during 2007.
A list of each case, the case number, the filing date and, where appropriate, the date the case was resolved are provided after the jump. Earlier this week, I did a similar post regarding patent filings (click here for the post). Look for a similar trademark post next week.
A hat tip to the Maryland Intellectual Property Law Blog for its 2007 IP review series that pushed me to start my own review of 2007 IP cases.
