Represented FN Herstal, S.A., a Belgian firearms and weapons manufacturer in a trademark infringement case against Clyde Armory involving our client's rights to the trademark SCAR for assault rifles and accessories. Following a bench trial, the court issued a lengthy order holding that FN Herstal has superior rights in its SCAR mark and that there was "ample evidence of bad faith" on Clyde Armory's part in adopting and using its infringing SCAR-Stock mark for assault rifle stocks. The court issued a permanent injunction against Clyde Armory, ordering it to, among other things, cease all use of SCAR or SCAR‐Stock and to deliver up for destruction its infringing products and any materials displaying SCAR or SCAR‐Stock. Clyde Armory has filed an appeal, and we are representing FN Herstal in the pending appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. FN Herstal, S.A. v. Clyde Armory, Inc. et al No. 1:12-cv-01867 (N.D. Ga., filed May 31, 2012).
