The Texas Court of Appeals ruled that an injunction barring Graham from purchasing Mary Kay Products for resale was appropriate. Graham was a distributor of Mary Kay who was terminated for selling the products at a retail location, a violation of her distributor agreement. She continued to opperate her retail location by purchasing product from other active distributors. The court found that Graham unlawfully induced these distributors to violate their distribution agreements and sell to Graham. Because there was a strong likelihood of continued injury to Mary Kay's brand by allowing the conduct to continue, the Court held that an injunction prohibiting the activity was proper.
