Google Dismisses Some Claims in Jurin v. Google and Gets Some Attorneys’ Fees

Jurin v. Google, Inc., 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 18208 (E.D. Cal. March 1, 2010)

Jurin v. Google is one of the 10 outstanding trademark-based claims against Google’s AdWords programs–in this case, over advertiser purchases of Jurin’s trademark “styrotrim.” This particular lawsuit took a sizable hit, as Google successfully got a quick dismissal of several claims. As an added perk, the judge awarded Google $6k in legal fees for harassing litigation behavior.

The court dismisses Jurin’s Lanham Act false designation of origin claim because Google never represents that it produces Styrotrim.
