Per the Complaint:
Plaintiff, an Indiana company, entered into an agency agreement with Defendant, a Louisiana company, in March 2014. In May 2014, Defendant signed a promissory note for over $32,000, including numerous vans and trailers as collateral. The agency agreement was then terminated in October 2014. Plaintiff sent Defendant multiple letters regarding amounts owed (over $73,000) and cessation of trademark usage. Now, Plaintiff alleges that Defendant continues to advertise services under Plaintiff’s name and operated numerous pieces of equipment in interstate commerce which impermissibly bore the trademark owned by Plaintiff.
