Bone McAllester Norton Lawyers Stephen Zralek & Maria Campbell Prevail in Trademark Infringement Trial

Stephen J Zralek Attorney at Bone McAllesterStephen J ZralekBone McAllester Norton PLLC is pleased to announce the firm prevailed at trial in a trademark dispute for plaintiff Tanzy Clark, owner of Salon Mogulz, before the Tennessee Business Court.  

The Court found Clark was the senior user of the trademark “Salon Mogulz” in connection with these services and that she successfully established likelihood of confusion. The Court permanently enjoined the defendant from using “Mogulz Barber & Lounge” or any confusingly similar mark for his business that incorporates the word “Mogul” in connection with hair services.

Maria Q Campbell AttorneyMaria Q CampbellWhile the defendant tried to demonstrate his own senior use through the legal doctrine of tacking, to prove that he began using “Moguls of Nashville City Club” or “Moguls of Nashville” before Clark's use of “Salon Mogulz”, the Court concluded that his marks failed to create the same continuing commercial impression as his current mark, "Mogulz Barber & Lounge."

The BMN legal team was led by Stephen Zralek, a commercial litigator with a focus on intellectual property and business disputes, and litigation attorney Maria Campbell. A copy of the opinion is found here

Bone McAllester Norton attorney James Crumlin featured in Nashville Fit Magazine

James A Crumlin Jr. Attorney at Bone McAllester NortonJames A Crumlin Jr. AttorneyBonelaw attorney James Crumlin continues to coach a Nashville favorite free community workout at the Tennessee State Capitol. This past May, over 130 community members joined James to celebrate six years of hard work, dedication, and encouragement. Nashville Fit Magazine dove deeper into the story behind this growing community workout.

Crumlin’s fitness journey began in 2003 when he ran the St. Jude Half Marathon in honor of his mother who passed a year earlier. He continued running the St. Jude Half Marathon every year, “except for 2010. It was really hot that year,” he laughs (Nashville Fit Magazine). The Capitol Steps Workout began in 2012 when a friend suggested to James they increase the intensity of their half marathon training; so they started running the steps at the Tennessee State Capitol. Along the way, in 2015, Crumlin began training for Ironman Triathlons with three friends. This led to his most recent accomplishment, completing his fourth full Ironman this past June, in Nice, France.

As the Capitol Steps Workout continued, more and more friends joined the fun. What began as a couple of friends training for a half marathon has transformed into a community of health and fitness advocates. Every Monday and Thursday night at the steps of the State Capitol building, you will find Crumlin challenging a group of nearly 90 dedicated Nashvillians to pursue a healthy lifestyle for their body, mind, and spirit. The twice-a-week group fitness adventure is free and open to people of all ages and fitness levels.

Bone Law Attorney Ed Yarbrough participates in Posting the Colors ceremony

For over twenty years now, Forest Hills Baptist Church has included a Posting the Colors ceremony in the worship service on the Sunday before the 4th of July. The tradition began with the church's choir director who hired soldiers from Ft. Campbell to perform at the church. He also recruited church member Command Sergeant Major Wayne Curry, a former member of the Third Infantry Battalion (The Old Guard) at the Arlington National Cemetery, to help him.

During the ceremony, Bone McAllester Norton attorney, Ed Yarbrough noticed the buff strap around Curry's arm, which signified he had been stationed at Arlington National Cemetery. As a member of Forest Hills and a former member of the Old Guard himself, Yarbrough asked if he could join the ceremony the following year. First Lieutenant Ed Yarbrough and Command Sgt. Major Wayne Curry have continued the tradition ever since.

Yarbrough began his time of service for the U.S. Military in the late 1960's. He was drafted out of law school in 1968 and enrolled in the Army in 1969. During this time, he attended Officer Candidate School and was assigned to serve at the Old Guard. He was later transferred to fight in the Vietnam War.

During his time of service, First Lt. Yarbrough received several medals; the two most important were the Bronze Star and the Combat Infantry Badge. The Bronze Star is presented by direction of the President and honors a soldier who has distinguished himself by meritorious service. During Yarbrough's time in Vietnam, he "demonstrated great courage under fire" and "outstanding leadership in combat operations, which served as an excellent example and inspiration to the Vietnamese officers... Yarbrough's performance of duty was in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Army and reflects great credit upon himself and the military service", according to the medal citation. When asked what he loves about the Posting the Colors ceremony, Yarbrough said, "I am very patriotic. I have always enjoyed my service in the Army and in particular the Old Guard. It was my duty to fight in Vietnam. I have stood at attention for the playing of the National Anthem many times and I still get a chill. It never gets old."
