Nearly a month before their Alumni Weekend festivities, Takoma Academy officials at the Takoma Park, Md., school received positive news regarding their yearlong conflict with a breakaway group known as Takoma Academy Alumni Association, Inc., (TAAA, Inc.). Deborah Chasanow, U.S. District Court chief judge, issued a preliminary injunction in the trademark infringement lawsuit in favor of the Potomac Conference and Takoma Academy.
Potomac Conference officials filed the lawsuit against TAAA, Inc. and Henry Pittman (who was president of TAAA, Inc.), last year after they received a strongly-worded letter from Pittman’s attorney asking the school to relinquish use of the “Takoma Academy Alumni Association” name. Pittman’s attorney claimed that the school’s use of the name was “unlicensed and unauthorized.”
