Hagar's Taco Business Bumbles
Highest Court N.D. California
Year Ended 2009
Plaintiffs Business Entity of Artist(s)
Defendants Restaurant Proprietor(s)
Other Hagar, Sammy
Short Description Red Head, Inc. licensed Rock Hard Taco to use the name and likeness of Sammy Hagar in connection with their Taco restaurant, Cabo Wabo Cantina. When Defendant's restaurant failed to live up to Plaintiff's expectations, Defendant was notified of the breach and told to cease using trademarks. The court granted Plaintiff's request for a preliminary injunction, requiring Defendants to change their menus so as not to associate itself with Sammy Hagar or anything evincing his likeness. The court granted Plaintiff's request for a preliminary injunction--there was a likelihood of success on the merits and imminent injury to Hagar's reputation if Defendants continued--but refused Plaintiff's request to attach Defendant's property by court order, saying there was no reason to assume Defendant would be unable to follow through on its financial obligations. - LSW
