MIAMI – A United Kingdom-based auto manufacturer alleges that two Miami businesses keep using its marks without authorization.
Jaguar Land Rover Limited filed a complaint on July 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Miami Rovers Corp. and Monte Carlo Cars Collection Corp. alleging trademark infringement, false advertising and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it suffered damages to its business as a result of its Land Rover trademarks being used by the defendants without its authority. The suit states that the defendants are not an authorized dealer, repair shop or parts seller for the plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks to enjoin the defendants from further infringing plaintiff's trademark, order the defendants to deliver for destruction all infringing products, all damages, legal fees, interest, and any other relief as the court deems just. It is represented by Glenn J. Waldman and Douglas T. Marx of Waldman Trigoboff Hildebrandt Marx & Calnan PA in Fort Lauderdale and Anessa Owen Kramer and John J. Rolecki of Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
