Update: Hooters trade dress suit appeal

Hooters, dissatisfied with a district court ruling (Dec. 7, 2004) that it could not use the mechanism of trademark law to preclude competing restaurants from having tank-top-clad waitresses serve mediocre chicken wings, has appealed, and the Eleventh Circuit will hear argument on January 13; the Fulton Daily County Report has all the detail you could ever want.

  • The phrase “mediocre checken wings” is redundant.
