MIAMI – A luxury hotel and condominium is suing a Miami Beach corporation and its director alleging they used a trademark without authorization.
Setai Acquisition LLC filed a complaint on April 11 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami-Dade Division against Luxury Rentals Miami Beach Inc. and Kristine Hall alleging trademark infringement and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it has suffered, and will continue to suffer, monetary loss and irreparable injury to its business, reputation and goodwill. The plaintiff holds Luxury Rentals Miami Beach Inc. and Kristine Hall responsible because the defendants allegedly willfully used a confusingly similar mark to its ’974 patent, known as the Setai mark, without authorization and created confusion, mistake and deception to the members of the trade and the consuming public.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks temporary and a permanent order enjoining defendants from unauthorized use of the ’974 mark, compensation for all damages, attorneys’ fees and all other relief that the court may deem appropriate. It is represented by Daniel J. Barsky and Daniel F. Benavides of Shutts & Bowen LLP in West Palm Beach.
