Lefkowitz (Appellee)
San Francisco, CA
Members: Michelle Dong, Sarah Mojarro, Emerald Tsui
Coaches: Kristin Lahaszow (Student), Greg Michael & Dorothy Yamamoto (Alumni)
Description of Issues:

ISSUE NO. 1: Did the District Court err in finding that the color red, when used in connection with retail gasoline and convenience store services, is aesthetically functional?

ISSUE NO. 2: Did the District Court err in finding that while Plaintiff’s alleged roof design trade dress was not inherently distinctive primarily because it is a common basic shape, it had nevertheless acquired distinctiveness under 15 U.S.C. § 1052(f)?

ISSUE NO. 3: Did the District Court err in finding that due to the weakness of Plaintiff’s asserted roof design trade dress, and the differences in the Plaintiff’s and Defendant’s marks and services, consumer confusion was not likely?

Scheduling Contact: Kristin Lahaszow (klahaszow@uchastings.edu)
