Venable partner Randy Miller
was quoted in an April 22, 2014 AdvertisingAge
article on a Supreme Court case between Pom Wonderful and Coca-Cola over product labeling. Pom is seeking approval to challenge the labeling of a Coca-Cola product under the Lanham Act, a federal law used by businesses when suing over false advertising claims. A Supreme Court ruling in favor of Pom could open the door to more suits under the Lanham Act.
“The Lanham Act has had a little bit of a lull over the last five years,” said Miller. “This case will be widely discussed, and companies are going to start to remember and think of the Lanham Act as a weapon in their toolkit.”
