WeeWorld Suit Dropped WITHOUT Prejudice Despite Nintendo’s Opposition
Categories: Trademark Cases
Last month WeeWorld asked a judge to dismiss its WeeMee/Mii suit without prejudice (meaning they could re-institute the case at a later date) while seeking relief in the UK before resuming any action in the U.S.
Nintendo objected requesting:
- dismissal of the suit with prejudice (meaning WeeWorld would not be able to re-institute the case at a later date); and
- recovery of its legal fees incurred on the matter to date – estimated at around $400,000.
According to an open letter from WeeWorld’s CEO, Celia Francis:
The court has ruled in our favor and while we have been asked to pay a small part of Nintendo’s legal fees, the case was dismissed “without prejudice.”
