Central Committee of Hamilton County Republican Party v. Dalton

The Hamilton County Republican Party sued Michael Dalton, who maintained a website critical of it.  The Party moved for a temporary restraining order, claiming that Dalton’s protest website infringed the party’s trademark in the phrase “Hamilton County Republican Party.”  Representing Dalton, Public Citizen filed a memorandum in opposition to the motion. After the motion was denied, the Party dropped its case.
