“University of Houston System wins trademark dispute as local law school adopts new name”
The University of Houston has prevailed in its federal trademark lawsuit against South Texas College of Law, which briefly changed its name to Houston College of Law earlier this year. The college announced today it has changed its name once again to satisfy a court order. The 93-year-old private law school is now South Texas College of Law Houston and will feature the color navy in future marketing efforts to distinguish the new name.
In addition to Cornell and Buzbee, the University of Houston System was represented by UH in-house counsel Eric Bentley, Mark Yzaguirre, and Jennifer Bloom; Al Deaver, Elizabeth King, Bruce Cannon, Bob McAughan, and Jeff Andrews of Sutton McAughan Deaver PLLC; and Jennifer Sickler of Thompson & Knight LLP.
