A Goosmann Law Firm client was just recently issued a favorable ruling from his Iowa Supreme Court appeal. The client, an Iowa-based manufacturer, sued a New Jersey company in Iowa state court for violations of both Iowa’s unfair competition law and its federal counterpart, the Lanham Act. On appeal, the New Jersey company claimed it did not have sufficient contacts with the state of Iowa and, therefore, could not be sued in Iowa. The Iowa Supreme Court disagreed, finding that the New Jersey company’s various activities in Iowa, including among other things, its purchase of products from an Iowa-based co-defendant in the lawsuit, were sufficient to require the New Jersey company to answer the allegations in an Iowa courtroom. A complete copy of the Iowa Supreme Court appeal and it’s ruling can be found HERE.
