Coffee By Design Settles Trademark Infringement Lawsuit


A well known Portland-based coffeehouse has settled a trademark infringement lawsuit that it filed last year against a Utah company that was using the acronym CBD to promote and sell its coffee products.

Coffee by Design, which operates three coffeehouses in Portland and one in Freeport, reached the settlement with defendants 4Bush Holdings LLC of South Kaysville, Utah, and Desert Lake Group, LLC of Cottonwood Heights, Utah, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Portland.

Under terms of the consent judgment, which was approved Friday by U.S. District Judge Nancy Torresen, the defendants must make a settlement payment to Coffee by Design. There is no mention of the settlement payment amount in court documents and the owners of Coffee by Design have chosen not to disclose the payment.
