Defendant’s use of “All Star Air” has allegedly caused instances of actual confusion (“in the form of misled customers and confused vendors”) with Plaintiff’s trademark, All Star Heating & Cooling. Both parties provide heating, ventilation and air conditioning services and are located just 30 miles apart.
Defendant never responded to Plaintiff’s demand letters, hence this lawsuit.
