Represented Getty Petroleum Marketing Inc. in a case where a franchisee of the client was terminated he began using the Getty name in connection with what he claimed was a coalition of other unhappy franchisees.  We convinced the Eastern District of New York that this former franchisee was not exercising a legitimate first amendment right but was merely using the GETTY trademark to cause confusion and to interfere with Getty's business.  The court issued an injunction within one week after the complaint was filed. Getty Properties Corp. v. Parmar, No. 2:05-cv-01493 (E.D.N.Y. filed Mar. 23, 2005).
