While all eyes were on the Depp/Heard defamation litigation last month, it was a quiet but interesting month in Indiana Intellectual Property litigation. Amazon and the Ligonier, Indiana-based perfumery have now fully briefed Amazon’s Motion to Dismiss. RE/MAX also seeks to dismiss its Defendants’ counterclaims. YouTuber Omi in a Hellcat is claiming lack of personal jurisdiction and improper venue, although he needed to quickly amend (i.e. increase) their Indiana sales statistics via Declaration after filing a Motion to Dismiss.
