Todd Roberts of Ropers Majeski Kohn & Bentley, Redwood City, CA, served as lead counsel for Straw Hat Pizza Cooperative Corporation, Straw Hat Restaurants, Inc., and individual board members in a shareholder dispute for trademark infringement concerning who had the right to control the marks following a shareholder vote to change business models. Roberts and his team at RMKB successfully established that the conduct of the plaintiffs in seizing the intellectual property of SHCC and transferring it to a separate holding company was wrongful, that their clients were the controlling board and that they owned the marks. The decision, which concluded nearly five years of litigation between the parties, is contained in a 40 page ruling by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
