Chris Cuneo Quoted in Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Story about Client Log House Foods


In the December 23, 2011 edition of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal Chris Cuneo provides commentary about his client Log House Foods' legal dilemma over their chocolate chip bag / logo design. 

Log House Foods Inc. is asking a federal judge to decide whether the Plymouth-based chocolate chip maker’s yellow bags are too similar to those of Nestlé USA Inc.’s Toll House brand. Log House filed the preemptive lawsuit Dec. 7 in Minneapolis’ U.S. District Court, nearly one month after chocolate powerhouse Nestlé threatened to sue over the packaging. Nestlé followed with a federal lawsuit in Cleveland on Dec. 12. Log House asked the court to rule that its packaging does not unfairly imitate Nestlé’s because the bags are different hues of yellow and share features that are not unique enough for Nestlé to claim as its own. 

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
