#33 . . . Motion To DQ is Denied
A quick post this morning before I head off to court.
Jill Koehler had filed a motion to disqualify me from representing our company and the Ranch before the United States Patent and Trademark Office proceeding. The judicial branch, the 'TTAB' denied that motion this morning.
You can read the decision here.
This 'motion' had a couple of quotes parroted out of one of the federal cases. The one Kansas case cited had zero to do with TTAB practice. My guess is that the motion was an attempt to try and force us to hire outside counsel. It failed. I have an absolute right to represent our company in the proceeding before the TTAB.
One small step for the Ranch as this thing clunks along the administrative law path.
Have a great day everyone! Terri
