Lawyers in Lake County were recently involved in the defense of a local party business. The business was sued by the Walt Disney Company for trademark infringement. The complaint alleged that the Kool Klown Party People used costumes of Pooh, Tigger, and Eyeore purchased from Peru and actively promoted them through their website, MySpace page, and Craigslist.org for parties. Disney requested that the company discontinue its promotions and send the costumes to Disney for destruction; however, the family returned the costumes to Peru for refunds which Disney argued showed "bad faith." The lawsuit seeks damages of $1 million dollars and is ongoing.
