HOUSTON – Last month, a federal judge granted the University of Houston’s motion for a preliminary injunction in a trademark case brought after South Texas College of Law changed its name to the Houston College of Law.
On Nov. 7, the university announced its new name: South Texas College of Law Houston.
South Texas College of Law had argued the word “Houston” is not the property of the UH System.
Conversely, UH argued the name change created confusion of affiliation between the two schools.
In its amended complaint, UH argued the defendant’s actions intentionally and willfully infringed upon the university’s intellectual property and were also violations of the unfair competition laws in the state of Texas.
