Tyson Foods Knocks Hot Dog TM Suit Out of the Park


John Dabney and Mary Hallerman were co-counsel as the Third Circuit found for Tyson Foods Inc. and Hillshire Brands Co. and rejected rival hot dog maker Parks LLC’s claims that the brands’ use of “Park’s Finest” on a line of Ball Park hot dogs was trademark infringement. The appellate ruling affirmed a 2016 Pennsylvania district court decision.
