Franchisor Wins Permanent Injunction and Damages against Holdover Franchisee Without Need for Evidentiary Hearing

United States - California | United States - North Carolina

A restaurant franchisor defended a lawsuit in North Carolina federal court against a terminated franchisee who continued using the franchisor’s trademarks and violated the non-compete after termination. Our firm represented the franchisor in this litigation.

The court granted the franchisor’s motion for a preliminary injunction. The court subsequently granted, without an evidentiary hearing, the franchisor’s requests for a permanent injunction, default judgment, contempt sanctions, and an award of Lanham Act treble damages and attorneys' fees.
