The Plaintiffs in this trademark lawsuit have been transporting goods under the name “Atlas” since 1948. The Atlas family of companies includes more than 430 independent Atlas agencies across the U.S. and Canada, plus authorized partners in 140 countries. Atlas Van Lines is based in Evansville, Indiana.
The Defendant is alleged to have offered its services to the public under the fictitious business name “Atlas Moving and Storage” rather of its corporate name, American Wide Relocation Inc, constituting trademark infringement and unfair competition.
A Motion for Preliminary Injunction has also been filed so stay tuned for updates.
