January 2013: Summary Judgment Victory for Google in Jurin v. Google Inc.

January 2013

These types of claims have been asserted against Google numerous times in courtrooms around the country, and the firm has successfully prevented plaintiffs from prevailing in each case in which the firm represented Google—often with plaintiffs voluntarily dismissing their cases. This plaintiff’s persistence proved futile when Quinn Emanuel obtained a summary judgment order in Google’s favor on all claims. The Court found that Plaintiff had “absolutely no evidence” that anyone was confused by the alleged uses, and that Plaintiff had “absolutely no evidence” that there had been any false statements in any advertisements. The Court also agreed with Quinn Emanuel that Plaintiff could not prove that his trademark has the requisite level of fame required for a claim of dilution.
