Hailey Bieber’s skincare brand Rhode lands its first win in lawsuit over name
As reported by The Fashion Law, a New York federal court has sided with Hailey Bieber in the trademark lawsuit regarding her new skincare brand Rhode. Specifically, it refused to issue a preliminary injunction that would have required her brand to stop using the name Rhode for the duration of a trademark lawsuit lodged against it by a fashion label of the same name. The latter first filed its lawsuit against Bieber and her companies RHODEDEODATO CORP. and HRBEAUTY, LLC d/b/a RHODE for trademark infringement and unfair competition under federal and New York state law in June. They argued that, in addition to preventing Bieber from using the name Rhode (her middle name) and “swamping [Rhode’s] market presence,” the injunction was necessary as a result of the fact that Bieber was planning to release a documentary about her brand titled, “The Making of Rhode,” which would further the risk of consumer confusion. The court disagreed with Rhode and, on July 22, Judge Lorna G. Schofield of the U.S. District for the Southern District of New York articulated that the “plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction is denied without prejudice.” Of course, this isn’t the end of the lawsuit, and we will continue to keep you updated with any developments.
