1903: Justice Served: Unanimous Jury Awards Jason $62,847,494 in Malicious False Advertising & RICO Case
If you think it can’t happen to you - think again. For years, Jason has been dealing with an industry competitor who set out to ruin him and destroy his name through trademark counterfeiting, unfair competition and civil racketeering.
Jason and his lawyer explain the details of the case which sound like something straight out of a spy movie. The defendants used Jason’s trademarked name and diverted search engine traffic to themselves and published falsities and salacious content on the web about Jason’s business and sent fake emails in his name.
But justice has been served as the jury found the defendants had clearly engaged in misconduct by using Jason’s name. They engaged in counterfeiting decided by the court based on the undisputed evidence that defendants participated in a form of competition that is unlawful, unfair, and is prohibited by law. The jury also found that defendants actually profited off their misconduct.
