Star Island Entertainment, LLC v. Boylston Entertainment, Inc.

Plaintiff's Memorandum in Support of Motion for Preliminary Injunction


This is a motion for preliminary injunction our firm filed in a trademark case in the Federal District Court for the District of Massachusetts in mid-2007. At issue was the defendants' nightclub "Mansion Boston." Our complaint alleged that this name was confusing with the well known "Mansion" nightclub in Miami, Florida.

In response to this motion, after hearing, Judge Gorton provided our client with partial relief. Within two months of that order, and following a contempt finding against the defendants which included monetary sanctions, the defendants changed the name of their nightclub from "Mansion Boston" to "The Estate". At this time, the parties are negotiating a final settlement agreement.
