Today a panel of the US Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals (Denver Colorado) issued a ruling that is of special interest to FAIR and this writer. In a unanimous decision, the court upheld the earlier ruling of the District Court relative to the case originally brought by Utah Lighthouse Ministry against me, my company, my wife, FAIR, and FAIR’s president.
The Court’s decision can be found in a PDF file here. It is 28 pages long, but basically says (as the District Court did) that UTLM has no case against any of the defendants for trademark infringement and unfair competition or cybersquatting. (These are the two issues on which UTLM decided to appeal their case.)
The wheels of justice grind slowly; it has taken just over three years to get to this point. I have no doubt that Sandra Tanner will choose to view this decision as an injustice (rather than justice) and to play the victim. It will be interesting to see how UTLM reacts to today’s decision. I can report, however, that in the Wyatt household there is much joy.
